PHOTOS BY PAUL MONDOK
Says FHM photographer Paul Mondok of all the stuff featured in this year’s Manila International Auto Show: “This place feels like a dream, in all manly ways possible.” He was, of course, both pertaining to the vrooms and car show models present during last weekend's event. “Let’s split up and wander off separately,” we told him. We shook hands in agreement, and like little kids shrieked and ran in opposite directions.
The four-day vehicle spectacle, held at the World Trade Center last week, had the best assemblage of motoring company cars in recent years, from the Hyundai Eons and Chrysler Dodges all the way to the Chevrolet Camaros and the likes. It was crowdy. It was raining. It was traffic. But all auto show attendants certainly let their amusement be known, us included.
Take the gallery below as a shining example of the breathtaking vrooms we saw at the event. Consider these pictures an extension of our eyesight, in all angles and corners achievable. We ducked, touched, and drooled. We wiped, posed, and took a second, even a third look. Check these photos out, and know how it feels.
