Showing respect, Rough World Style

As a an avid follower of Akira Nakai’s craft, I make it sure to visit RWB Manila‘s turf known as Car Porn Racing whenever he is in town to watch him work on his latest creations.

The Comfortable Runabout Vehicle?

The first generation Honda CR-V was a major hit in the Philippines. It was the best seller in its class during its 1998 launch.

The Finale, 2014

Time flies so fast as it has been another great year of producing content for this site. As I mentioned last year, “I have no background in writing and photography. I took this challenge with open arms as I wanted to show everyone what the Philippines is capable of.” Not this time around. A lot…

Why Patience Pays Off

I met Malone Juan 4 years ago with his Genesis, it looked really good with a local set of 19’s and an OEM kit. Fast forward to later part of 2014 as he attended a Stance Pilipinas / Manila Fitted meet with Manila’s best looking Hyundai. On to the photos. Malone patiently waited 9 months for…
