The All-New Ford Ranger

All New Ford Ranger Custom Pinoy Rides
We shot the All-New Ford Ranger during the last Ford Club Philippines 10-Year Anniversary. Let me tell you this, I think it looks awesome.

From a styling perspective, I’ve always liked the Toyota Hilux better than the previous rendition of the Ford Ranger. But for this latest version, I’m pretty impressed! It’d be a good platform for any sort of mods you’d like to do with it. Audio, Offroad, Slammed to the ground, or just about anything!

I can’t wait to see modified versions of this in upcoming car shows. Bring it on!

Check out all the features of the All-New Ford Ranger on the Ford Philippines website. Enjoy!

Coolest Police Car in the Philippines?

Coolest Police Car Nissan S15 Silvia Custom Pinoy Rides Hot Import Nights
Is this the coolest police car in the Philippines or what?

Okay, okay, I know it’s not a real police car, but rather, it’s the theme of this Nissan S15 Silvia show car. But wouldn’t it be cool if it were real?

Bimmerfest 2012 Coverage – Bonifacio High Street – Part 1

The BMW Car Club of the Philippines brought out their meanest rides in this year’s Bimmerfest 2012. Held at the Bonifacio High Street on the 5th of May, we got to see the much loved and pampered beauties. On my way there it actually started to rain, so I wasn’t hoping on getting a lot of photos in, but as soon as I parked, the sun came shining, and a team of dedicated detailers worked their magic across all the cars in the show.
