I was able to catch the last day of the 2nd Manila International Autoshow, thanks to a pair of complimentary tickets mailed to my mom. It was held at the World Trade Center in Roxas Boulevard, a venue that dwarfs the Trans Sport Show‘s Megatrade Hall in all aspects. It was not really a tuner’s paradise,Â the cars’ themes were split even from exotics, the latest, the rare, and the one-of-a-kind. There were all sorts of side events outside including a stunt driving show andÂ off-roading, none of which I was able to see due to time constraints.
I missed it’s inauguration last year, something I’m still unable to believe as I am omnipresent at car shows, but this will go in my yearly must-see list. The place is accessible, parking is ample, although I was charged Php 40.00 for a show that cost Php 50.00, and the event itself is obviously well-organized. Plus, they do claim that they are the biggest motoring event of the year. Some of my personal highlights would be the Lambo, the Hummer H2 with matching bling, the new CR-V, and of course the girls.
