Joma Montaner’s Old School Toyota Celica Drift Machine

Joma Montaner Old School Toyota Celica Drift Machine Custom Pinoy Rides Car Photography Manila Philippines pic1
In the world of drifting, there are cars that can people can easily associate to the word “drift;” the most common probably being the Nissan S-chassis-based cars, and the Toyota Hachi-Roku. But there’s something special about doing something that goes out of the norm, like what Joma Montaner has done here.

A Celica isn’t something that you usually use in the same sentence that contains the word “drift.” But hey, if you really want to stand out from the crowd of drift cars out there, then being different is definitely one way to do it. And it looks like Joma Montaner has succeeded in separating his car from the crowd.

What can I say about our first MFest experience held last April 12? Well, it was a blast! Where else can you go to an event where the action starts soon as you leave the house? Yes, the way to MFest starts with a caravan a.k.a fun run, where cars and car clubs gather at designated pick-up points and join-in on the caravan as the number of cars grow bigger and bigger after every pick-up point and as the group gets nearer and nearer to the main MFest event location – Clark International Speedway.

On location, things were definitely action-packed. This was an event where spectators and participants were one and the same. Yup, that’s right. People don’t go to MFest just to watch. People come to be part of it. There’s something for everyone, whether your adrenalin rush comes from drift, drag, or circuit, you’ll find it at MFest.

And the show cars weren’t just there for show, they also participated in the track events. It was all about “show and go.” Of course, there were also the car show models to provide eye candy to spice things up.

So overall, the event was a blast to have been part of. Can’t wait for the next leg happening in November. For now, stay tuned for our photo coverage coming up in the next few days.
