MANILA, 30 May 2013 — This is what the 22nd TRANS SPORT SHOW is all about. As an interactive, entertaining and experiential forum for car enthusiasts , the slogan “Driving Generations” bear witness to over two decades of excellent executions of automotive aftermarket design concepts, current technologies, car restoration and automobile heritage.

To highlight what “Driving Generations” is all about, the show will feature special events guaranteed to reinforce its position as the “car show like no other.” Here is a quick rundown.
The 2nd Philippine Nostalgic Car Show, features excellent vintage automobile restorations. These prime example of “autonostalgia” as the organisers define it creates the connection with the past, showing that despite the time difference, car enthusiasts pay attention to the same details when building or restoring a cult or a classic car.
The 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911, will be celebrated at the show with a full showcase of 911s from various era. This comprehensive displays of 911s owned by members of the independent Porsche Club Philippines are meticulously maintained, yet driven hard weekly by the members of the Club in their “Sunday Runs.”
The Philippine Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft (DTM) cars and the launch of an old-school racing event called the “Class DTM Championship will also be a highlight of the show. For the uninitiated, DTM is the German Touring Car Championship, a highly prized race series in Europe in the mid-1980s initially involving only German marques. Members of the Philippine DTM, an organization of German touring race car enthusiasts is at the forefront of this activity at the show.
60 years of the Corvette and American Horsepower. The show will also celebrate the Chevrolet Corvette’s 60 years with a display of cars from the significant years of the brand. This includes a display of one of the Corvette Pace Cars, in impeccable condition. Two Ford Mustangs, both painstakingly restored by paint guru and car show judge John Escobar will also be on display. One Mustang will be a replica of the “Eleanor” from the movie “Gone in 60 Seconds.”
Rally Car Displays. For 2013 two rally cars that have made significant impact in the international rally circuit, including the World Rally Championship (WRC) and the Asia Pacific Rally Championships are ready for display. Two of these cars were game changers–the mighty Audi Quattro and the wild-to-drive Nissan 240RS. The 240RS is guaranteed to be a very unique display.
DJ Jam@TSS. The connection between cars and music has never been highlighted than a sound off. 2013 showcases a more contemporary music exposition called DJ Jam@Trans Sport Show with the EMEX (Electronic Music Exhibition) with Manolet “DJ Papi” Santos of Switch DJ and DJ Boyet Sison of the famed Where Else?, Stargazer, Euphoria and Faces.
