carshows of summer

The signs of summer have arrived! Yeah!! this week marks the first OFFICIAL week of
summer vacation, when the kids crowd every nearby resorts and go around playing in
icafes and hanging out with peers at night.
It’s a great time to grab your camera, head outside, and photograph all the summer
activities on your bucket list.
so many carshows have been organized by my friends. and since I live in Caloocan,
Ill be focusing on carshows in Manila area.

It goes without saying that here at Caloocan a lot of people are crazy about all kinds
of cars and suv, trucks, and I know there are plenty of car lovers here in Monumento
that share the same passion for things that roll; therefore, the LOVERBOY would
like to recommend the following carshows that happened and are about to happen for
the hot summer.

Today I talked about modified cars Well modified cars are great but ....
Poorly modified cars are not so great. modified cars may be more work
for the technician thats a given.

and what if you have a new car under warranty and wanted to  customize ?
Modded cars and warranty coverage has always been a touchy subject. It’s
like oil and water. It’s up to your warranty admin and Service Manager to say
 whether a repair gets covered or not. It’s their nuts on the line.  but if you want
to mod your new car, be prepared to kiss your warranty goodbye. and thats
the truth. well in tagalog we call this "tiis ganda". (thi-is ghanda)
