Last September 6, I decided to attend and check out some of the cars at the Manila Sports Car Club (MSCC) monthly meet. It is a gathering that I always wanted to attend to relax and see classic sports cars. But as a nocturnal, I spend time during Saturday evenings on night-outs forcing me to sleep it out on Sunday mornings. I broke my normal routine for breakfast food, coffee, and laid-back Sunday driving. I will keep the captions very short with these 35 photo-recap post. Enjoy!
A group that was founded in 1967, MSCC is considered to be one of the most exclusive car groups in the country as members should have a vehicle from a certain list. For non-sports car owners, the gathering only allows guests of the members.
I attended the meet with my friends from Sushi Factory to tour Takashi Mori from Japan.
Jeiven Perez (Sushi Factory) brought his Celica, while Paolo Wong drove his 240z to the meet.
Aurick Go brought in his RX-7.
Skylines are not eligible for the group as it is considered as a Grand Tourer.
I did not plan to take photos upon arrival as I just wanted to hang out and check the cars closely. But after seeing several ‘scenic spots’ convinced me to blog about it.
Who would miss taking photos of a 356 Speedster?
Several styling cues reminds me of a 300SL.
Possibly the only Lamborghini Miura in our country. The official Facebook account of MSCC stated that out the car was modified into SV spec while retaining the iconic headlamps of the S variant.
The exhaust note was pure raw V12.
The future classic 997 MK2.
Mercedes-Benz should revive the design language of the 70’s.
Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint owned by a Japanese car collector. Takashi Mori had a blast while talking to the owner.
De Tomaso Pantera in pristine condition.
A very significant car in my life, more than 20 years ago the W113 was the first car I sketched.
I strongly believe that the W113 is one of the best designed cars of all time. Proportions of this car is simply amazing.
SLS Black Series looking very wild in yellow – a 16,000$ option!
Look how wide it is compared to a 996.
Two supercharged Ford GT‘s.
Around 930 am, we drove to Burgos Circle in Global City to check some of the cars parked in the area.
The informal gathering felt very laid back with classic cars and supercars driving around.
The owner of this car has several classic 911’s in his garage. The guys call him ‘Magnus Walker of the Philippines‘.
The mid 80’s – early 90’s Porsches is my ultimate attainable dream car. I’ve always wanted a 964, but seeing several Classic’s makes me think twice.
Cars never stopped rolling through.
I also finally had a chance to take more photos of this car for an individual feature.
Paolo’s Z got 2 thumbs up from the classic car enthusiasts.
SWB Targa! Never seen one this fresh. I heard the owner owns modified classic 911’s for race purposes – this is the only one he kept stock.
For the mean time this will be my weekend dilemma: Saturday late night outs or Sunday morning meets?
I’ve always preferred coffee over beer.
