Grand Metro Auto Fest 2010

The Grand Metro Auto Fest presented by the Girl Racers Club, Monster Radio RX 93.1, Slimmers World, and Xenon Bulbs was held at the MegaTent Hall Ortigas Center last Sept. 11, 2010. There was also an Inter-Collegiate Streetdance Competition aside from the automobile exhibit. This might be the fourth Grand Metro Auto Fest while the streetdance competition is on its ninth year.

Just to make it clear first, I go to car shows not only for the girls but also (and truly) for the cars.

It was my first time to go to the Grand Metro Auto Fest. I was intrigued that it could be different from usual car shows when Girl Racers Club is one of the hosts. But, it wasn’t so different. It’s like any other car shows I’ve been although they served The Bar in three flavors free-flowing at the entrance. I am so easy to please.

I am unsure what kind or type of cars they mean to exhibit, but most I saw are those pimped or customized. Some are even what I know as Itasha.

Itasha is designing your car with anime, manga, or video game characters.

Here’s the stage of the dance competition among colleges & universities was held. The college I studied in, Mapua Tech, is one of the competitors.

Sad to say, I was disappointed by the lack of girl models. None of my fave car show models were there.

On the right picture is my friend Marco. I slipped as soon as I stepped on that stage. My feet could be too big for that space or I was just really clumsy.

Grand Metro Auto Fest may not be at par with the other car shows I’ve been to (or could be just last year’s), but the drinks and dancing were entertaining. Should there be one this year, I hope they choose a better venue. Somewhere that could accomodate their target number of cars to exhibit. The place was too cramped that it was even hard to take pictures. The car show’s not too bad if you are into pimping or customizing autombiles. You can get ideas how to design your own and even meet exhibitors that could provide customization services.
