Rocket Events rocked the Eastbound Auto Show!

The Shell Tambay admins and I had the best time last night at Rocket Events Production's Eastbound Auto Show. Who knew the Cainta municipal hall could turn into such a hoppin' place? You could see all the cool lights and hear the ass-kicking beats from a mile away. It was such an adrenaline rush. As I was parking, I couldn't wait to get out of the car and join in! One of those car shows that you know is gonna be good even before you get there.

 Over 60 entries and all of them were sexy as heck. I have no idea how the judges could possibly decide who to give the 170 awards to! A mixture of Japs, Euros, old shool and new school eye-candies. I was literally dizzy after the show from trying to make my head turn 360 the entire time, I didn't know where to look! But aside from the awesome cars, we met and talked to so many people behind the amazing builds. And the best part is that a lot of them are members of Shell Tambay so it was like a house party! :)

I'm sending a huge congratulations to Rocket Events Productions for such a successful show. The Eastbound Auto Show did not disappoint. No surprise there. To mister Kel Rodriguez of Rocket Events Productions, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for inviting Pink Turbo as a media partner. I absolutely cannot wait for your next one. :)

Okay, okay... I know you wanna see the cars right? So I'm gonna quit yapping and show you my favorites. Get a napkin ready for your drool. ENJOY!

Yummy Glass Detailing at Soapy Rides Car Wash!

I have been bearing with crazy watermark-filled windshield since I got Ace and it has come to a point where I absolutely can't drive in the rain. Which is sad because I used to love it. :( But all that stupid watermarks make it impossible for me to do so. When light hits the watermarks on the windshield, it spreads it like butter on bread and I literally have zero visibility. Changing the wipers helped a bit when I drive during the day but when night time comes, and it rains, ugh... I drive like a grandma.

So I was really psyched when mister Karl Donato of Soapy Rides Car Wash told me about glass detailing. I was already considering having a new windshield fabricated for Ace! So imagine my relief. He said it would get rid of all the watermarks completely. I was skeptical at first, but boy... gladly I was proven wrong. The new windshield combined with the glass detailing cleaned that windshield up like it was a new car. No exaggerations.

Drooling over a Corolla on Air Suspension

Source: Arch. Ed Cabs
This 1994 Toyota Corolla is owned by a friend of mine, Arch. Ed Cabs of Grupo Toyota and East Auto Club. Isn't it such a masterpiece? It took my breath away when I saw it during one of our Shell nights.

I will go out on the limb here and say that this is the first Toyota Corolla on air suspensions in the Philippines.

Trying Out the Cyclo Fuel Injector and Carb Cleaner

    As a part of figuring out why Ace hard starts and chokes, a friend of mine suggested trying out a Fuel Injector Cleaner. As you may know, I just changed the timing belts, spark plugs, batteries and even cleaned the distributor but none of it did the trick. So cleaning out the fuel injectors seems like a good idea. Plus, I watched on Discovery Turbo that it adds a couple of horsepower so... yeah baby. 

All you need to do is pour a bottle of it in your gas tank to mix with your car's fuel. As the fuel travels through the engine's fuel injectors, the cleaner does it's magic and gradually gives a smoother path for your fuel. Thus, getting rid of the engine choke. Or at least that's the hope in Ace's case.

    I got my Cyclo Fuel Injector (and Carb) Cleaner from Ace Hardware, Tiendesitas branch for Php 279.75. I was surprised how cheap it is, but it would have been nice to choose from a wide range of other brands for comparison but Cyclo was the only one they had.

Yay! New Denso Design Blade windshield wipers!

I'm actually laughing as I write this. Yay! I am so happy I got new wipers! Ha ha! Simple joys in life. :)

Since I got Ace (my baby Accord), I haven't changed it's windshield wipers. That means I've been bearing with useless old wipers that give me zero visibility when it rains for approximately 4 years now. So I'm sure you can understand now why I'm all giddy. :)

  So I went to the nearest Blade store and got me some Denso "Design Blades". Which, I thought were the banana type ones but it turns out it was just a traditional wiper. I was so excited that I forgot to check. Ha ha! I'm still very happy with it though. Denso's Design Blades is a crossbreed. It's just your traditional wiper type but has the sleek sexy look of a banana wiper. Oh yeah baby. ;)

So yay! I'm excited for rain now! Rain please! :)
