27th TransSportShow: Prepped cars galore

The  27th staging of the TransSportShow – the most recognized and enduring car show in the country close to so many Filipino car enthusiasts’ hearts – promises to be the ground zero for  customized cars  in all four days from May 17 to May 20, 2018.  

The motoring event will be held at the SMX Convention Center by Mall of Asia, showcasing  over 100 project vehicles  specially prepped (restored and customized) to compete in the much awaited TransSportShow Cup Competition. 

Culture Vulture. A gaggle of car enthusiasts flocked to the TransSportShow last year which developed a some sort of a culture.
“For 26 years now, TransSportShow  has always been and continues to be in the forefront of automotive restoration and car show competitions. Having produced hundreds of show car winners in its 26 years run , TransSportShow has helped hundreds of car shops and individuals flourish in this field - several of whom have become ‘Influencers’ when it comes to auto restoration. ”, Sophie delos Santos, TSI President said.   While cars shows of various types and sizes are held all over the country , TransSportShow is still the only car show where 85% of what is on the show floor are beautifully restored and/or customized show cars vying for a prestigious competition.  It is the car enthusiasts’ venue of choice for creative self-expression .    

From its inception in 1992 as a general automotive show,   Trans Sport Show has evolved into a successful iconic brand, transcending its category as just a car show to becoming part of the Filipino car enthusiasts’ culture . It is the only car show which spans generations of car enthusiasts where they create their interesting “TransSportShow stories” to share with fellow car lovers.

Special Project. Restoration and customized autos are vying for honor and glory at this year's show.
This year,  among the must-see exhibits are  project vehicles of previous Best of Show winners like Alex Car Restoration, Alfred Motorworks, Import Hook Up, and last year’s first time entrant and winner Vonetix Radical Creations. The latter will display as well last year’s Best of Show and poster car – a 1995 Toyota Corolla for the benefit of those who missed it last year.
