Kei truck craze!

So I've seen some coverage of the kei truck craze around the web especially from the speedhunters website. And it made me think about hopping in the kei truck bandwagon. First because it looks dope. second, it would make for a great shop service.

maybe if i get my hands on one i'll turn it into something like


or this

So if anyone from Suzuki or Cebu(LOL.) is reading this, kindly throw me one as an early christmas gift. Thanks!:)

Lack of posts.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. Been busy with school stuff and some wheelin' and dealin'. I'm very pleased to see that even though I haven't been updating, viewers have been growing in number. Thank you for viewing! Expect more updates soon. Coming out with a bunch of goodies this weekend or so.

Grand Metro Auto Fest '10

Last saturday was the grand metro auto fest '10. It was a good and well thought out event. Awesome venue, nice cars, good food and a good turnout of people. There was an excellent lineup of events as well. Anyway onto some visuals!

First off, my buddy Yeoj's Mazda 3. This car is sponsored by our shop Tads Autosport and Dupont. Didn't win that day but what can i say? You win some, you lose some.
If you wanna see more snaps of this car go here http://dopegarage.blogspot.com/2010/06/orange.html

This Mugen RR kitted FD had the biggest display area in the event. It flaunted so hard it seemed like a transhow display. One thing I didn't like about this car though, it had a sound system. Don't get me wrong, I'm into mobile media just not into cars fitted with lots of aftermarket goodies. This thing should be built for the track, in my opinion. But then again, to each his own.

that chin.. I want..

If i was rocking type r bumpers, that's how it'd look like. Those J's racing airducts just make it perfect. Although i'm not diggin' the grill. I'd probably stick to the stock type r grill.

Sick Evo X!

Probably the best Suzuki Swift I've ever seen. This thing is just amazing. The best car out there in my opinion.

I was never a fan of VIP-style tuning but when I saw this Junction Produce Accord, I was sold.

some exotics at the show

The show stopper Ferrari 599

Porsche 911

S2000 loaded with spoon goodies

I've seen this car before in our JDMU-auto extreme feature, though I haven't met the owner. Sick ek hatch with a K20a powerplant. LEGIT.

K20a with ITB's must've cost him a fortune. My dream set-up..

The 370z from Emperor


Probably the most gorgeous, hottest and sexiest model out there. In my honest opinion ;)

That's all for now. I'd like to give a shoutout to my homeboys at neat crew! Goodjob on that well-deserved win Omar! Sorry wasn't able to take some snaps. It was always flooded in your area. If you wanna see their blog peep them here http://whoathatsneat.blogspot.com

Wangan run into the midnight sun.

Last friday was a blasted day for me. It was a holiday and I woke up retardedly early just so I can fit all the things I had to do in one jampacked day. I had to redo the sticker design for the shop(cause of the effed up thing that you can't put jpeg images through the cutter!) there was non-stop back and forth chatting between me and our shirt supplier trying to get shit done and there was a tremendous checklist to be done on our GMAF entry car. Although I did get a kick in doing all these things and it felt like working on cars and designs was just an excuse to feel worked up. LOL. Anyway the day itself turned out great. I got all the shit done, cars prepped and cleaned, and even had the time to realign my bumpers(yes!). And in the back of my mind, I was counting the hours until it's time for our usual friday night JDMU gathering(the infamous yabangan nights).

I always look forward to hanging out with this fine group of individuals simply because we share the same passion and outlook towards our cars. We don't want too much shit going on and performance is of utmost importance. As the JDMU saying goes, "leave rice on the table." Another cause of the jitters was the speed testing that happened after the hang out. I've never watched drag racing before except for some occasional run the light speeding i encountered. But the legit, ungodly hour drag racing, I haven't experienced. So after hanging out at krispy kreme where much jokes and stories were shared,(cause the neon never lit up!) we headed to White Plains where I guess most of these races occur. We got there around 12 and the boys were heating up their tires. After a few burnouts and a couple cars speeding, I didn't see much action anymore so I left early and headed home(I didn't know it starts around 2 or 3. LOL.) nuff talk. enjoy the pics!


Just one of the beasts we saw while having the cars washed. Amuse 370Z of Emperor Motorsports nestled under a tent, sitting pretty.

Show preps..

So as most of you may know, the recently concluded Grand Metro Auto Fest(more on this later) was at the Ortigas Megatent. And our shop(Tadz Autosport) was an exhibitor at the event. So since the show was in ortigas, we took advantage of the location and got a carwash at one of the most notorious detailing shops here in the Philippines, Big Bert's.
