April 21, 2007 update
Went to the Trans Sport Show earlier today. Was not really able to really check out the rides,Â had limitedÂ time. The Lamborghini was hot. Then there were the usual army of uber-modified Japanese cars. Starbright body kits had theÂ wholeÂ space in the middle. I wonder what kind of deal they got from there. Then there was Kristine Hermosa; obviously she was with Diether. Anyway, I’ll stop here and just let the pictures do the talking.

Now on it’s 16th year, this year’s Trans Sport Show will be held on April 18-22. As usual, it starts on a Wednesday, ends on a Sunday, will still be held at the SM Megamall Megatrade Halls 1-3 and, is open from 10:00 am to 8:30 pm. The year’s theme is “The Car Show for Enthusiasts by Enthusiasts!”
I was kind of hoping this would be the year they looked for a new venue. It gets really crowded in SM Megamall especially during the weekend the event ends. Every year I’m sure their attendance grows, but their accomodation stays the same. Too bad since this is the “show” where all other local auto shows are guaged; and, Tradeshow International, Inc., the event’s organizers, has the most auto-related affiliations in the industry. Not to mention, theÂ most number of car shows by the same organizerÂ including the Custom Car & Sport Truck Show, the Vintage and Sport Car Festival, Concours d? Elegance and the IASCA Nationals.
But still, I, like all other car freaks out there, am still looking forward to it. Surely, this year’s batch of show cars will be debuted in the Trans Sport Show, then the cars will make their rounds in the lesser known shows throughout the year; making them havens for “Nakita ko na ‘yan” cars. Oh, and the girls as well.
