The Trans Sport Show showcases new car models that have been modified and upgraded along with vintage cars. If you are into customization or simply appreciate the activity just like me and my son, then this is a car show for you.

In this event, people who  wish to see their dream car modified can be satisfied seeing beautiful models as results. To put it in a quote: “All human males were as fascinated with cars as they were with breasts.” ― Anita Clenney

We all love our own cars and I am no exception. It is safe to say that we are all proud when we ride in a car that shines and  is clean both on exterior and interior aspects.

I first met my friend Japs of Wipeout AutoCraft when i asked for his help through car detailing service. My challenge for him was to make our 10-year old Toyota Revo look brand new, and his team did exactly that. Since then, his shop has been my most trusted shop that I would turn to when it comes to car detailing and even painting jobs.

Wipeout is a regular exhibitor at the Transport Show and almost all of the car shows in the Philippines. That’s why it’s no wonder that I met him again in the show during the first day that i visited the car show. In his shop, you will be surprised what he could do for those cars that were displayed on their booth especially the 1967 Volkswagen Kombi.  It’s the same ‘wow factor’ as when my friend saw our Revo when it was repainted again.

With Wipeout achievement in various car show competitions in the country, it is no wonder why the team can make anyone’s car from good to great looking.

    The Side Tripper

    “Make sure you don’t take any side trips,” warns Schumler, from a phrase in the 1993 American film Swing Kids. If you are someone who does not have time to lose, then it is better for you to stick to your main agenda, because there is something about side tripping that submerges the soul in experiences that sometimes make you hope that time would stand still, as the experiences they bring can be more impactful than the main trip itself. It is that free flowing agenda, an unexpected sleepover or a detour that has unintentionally brought pleasant surprises. You can live without it, like you can eat a cake without its icing, but your journey may not be as meaningful. If travel is the ‘best medicine for the heart’,* then for me, side trips are secret ingredients to the most memorable travels and other events that can happen in between or off the main route of one’s itineraries. Welcome to Side Tripper, a collection of photographs and blogs about the many side trip adventures of our family and friends. *Source: The Global Commission on Aging and Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, in partnership with the U.S. Travel Association (Los Angeles Times, December 17, 2013 by Chris Erskine)
