Southern Sun: The Stance Pilipinas / Manila Fitted Meet
Last February 25, Stance Pilipinas / Manila Fitted held its first meet for the new year. In line with its yearly tradition, the kick-off event was held at the Southern part of Metro Manila. Over the past 3 years, the “Southern Sun” meet was held at the Filinvest Tent Alabang Parking Lot – which can fit 250 cars in a single go.
Known to be one of the most awaited meets in its calendar, Alabang meets happen once a year due to logical reasons. For 2020, the meet fell on a national holiday to help attendees avoid the traffic due to road constructions around the vicinity. Check out the recap below.
RWB Yutaka rolled in thru the meet together with the Buzzhype Crew. With the parking space being limited thanks to spectators and guests of nearby establishments, the queue for some of the cars took almost 2 hours. Logistics being a constant challenge for Stance Pilipinas, the group has been scouting for parking lots since its founding year. Thankfully, the group has received support from several private companies such as SM Malls, Ayala Malls, Megaworld and Filinvest.
While a good number of attendees came in from the South, friends from the Northern side of Metro Manila came in as well.
One of the talked about cars in the meet was this Mini fitted with a Honda D15.
Mikko’s Rocket Bunny RC-F was present. Feel free to check the feature here.
Another car possibly worthy of a Street63 Feature, Bryan’s E30 Touring. Should we take a look at this soon?
While being a “stance meet”, which is notoriously known overseas for “non-functional cars”, Stance Pilipinas meets in the country evolved to cater to several purpose-built vehicles. At the end of the day, it still boils down to a community sharing their love for the local car scene.
With summer closing in, Stance Pilipinas plans to roll out 3 meets in the next 4 months including several collaborative efforts. Stay tuned for more content.
