The 2017 Subic Bay Auto Show attracted a huge crowd and lots of impressionable vehicles.
A message to those living up north who want to attend the 2017 Manila International Auto Show held from 30th March to 2nd April 2017 at the World Trade Center Metro Manila in Manila, but find the venue too far for them: You can cheer up a little as the 8th Subic Bay Auto Show was also slated for May 6. The car show – which promised hot cars, hot babes and good music – was held at Harbor Point, Ayala Mall in Subic Bay Freeport Zone.
Subic’s annual auto gathering attracted a huge crowd and lots of impressionable vehicles to the Harbor Point Mall. On its 8th year, the show attracted enthusiasts from neighboring provinces – which some coming all the way from Metro Manila, as well as those from as far as Abra also came to share their love for nice shinny cars, good music and good vibes.
Event-goers came in groups big and small despite the unrelenting summer heat to check out the equally hot cars and towering trucks.

The show provided the variety of cars on display like a pair of Hondas, one being a Spoon-themed Civic Type R hatchback and the other a Jazz RS. Additionally, going around the show attendees saw a whole variety of cars ranging from European, Japanese, Korean as well as American machinery, with most being modified to showcase the owner’s individual tastes. Perhaps the country’s recent economic gains as well as event’s prominence in the region attracted a fair share of quality cars for this year’s show.
A selection of JDM legends including a Mugen DC2 Integra Type R and a Lancer Evolution 9 were prime examples. For those who fall in love with American vehicles, there were a selection of Ford F-series trucks to choose from and the gangster-looking classic Cadillac. Apart from these, a row of classic Toyota’s and tastefully modified VW Buses was also on display.
The 2017 Subic Bay Auto show went on until late night with LEDs from the car adding more color to the event as their music making things more festive. With its strong history, the show extends its prominence as the premiere summer destination for car fans in Central Luzon and even beyond.
Good to know that the Philippines is now teeming with so many car enthusiasts that various major automotive events can now be held simultaneously and still be well-attended. Perhaps we will see you there?
