This year’s Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS) will have you strolling down the automotive memory lane as it treats visitors to an exhibit of 12 iconic vehicles that shaped the automotive landscape of the country in the last 60 years. The 5th PIMS is slated on September 18-21 at the World Trade Center.
The rare collection will feature vehicles from the 1950’s to the 2010’s all fully restored and in mint condition from a classic Mercedes Benz and a Volkswagen Beetle from the 1950’s and 1960’s, Toyota Sprinter from the 1970’s, the Mitsubishi Lancer Box Type from the 80’s, the Mazda Miata, Kia Pride, Honda Civic Hatchback, BMW 3 Series, Peugeot 205GT, and Isuzu Hi-Lander from the 90’s up to the more modern Suzuki Swift and Nissan 370z.
Bigger than ever, the 5th PIMS continues to surprise its visitors with innovative exhibits from the largest gathering of car manufacturers moving together towards the country’s increased mobility and economic growth.
“The main motivator in the success of previous Philippine International Motor Shows is its function to show the country that the automotive industry works as one in promoting progress. Our strength lies in the bond among the 16 automotive brands working for the common goal which is the triumph of the industry,” said CAMPI President Atty. Rommel Gutierrez.
“This year, PIMS will celebrate the motoring industry’s continuous progress and more so, the positive changes that the industry brings to our consumers and to the country’s economic standing,” Atty. Gutierrez concluded.
The 16 top automotive brands participating this year include: BAIC, BMW, Daewoo, Honda, Isuzu, JMC, Kia, Lexus, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Peugeot, Suzuki, Toyota, and Volkswagen.
