Who is the most important passenger of your car?

My girlfriend! But it actually doesn’t matter which car we’re in. She’s my number one road navigator and co-pilot. Plus, being stuck in traffic with her really just makes things a whole lot better to endure.

How do you exercise your Lancer’s engine with the horrible traffic these days?

I prefer to call it a weekend car. I make sure to take it out for a spin once a week, especially during weekends and holidays when there’s less traffic. I always enjoy fun runs and car meets with other car enthusiasts — we develop camaraderie during those times. For my daily commute in the metro, I drive an SUV.

 Has this Mitsubishi Lancer always been your dream car?

It has always been a dream to own a turbo car and at that time, I only had two choices in mind, either the Subaru WRX STI or the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

What was your first car, and how did you learn to drive?

My first car was a 1995 Honda Civic ESI. Iwas 16 when I started to practice driving at home with our family driver as my instructor. I was eventually allowed to drive to and from school accompanied by our driver. My interest in cars started just like how most boys did. I remember playing with my toy trucks. In high school, I would tag along my older cousin who frequents car shows and drag races in the Port area. That’s when I realized that I wanted a car to call my own, a real one that I could drive work on.

Any future plans for your ride?

I lean toward OEM/USDM design,where the modifications lean more on function over form. In the future, I’m thinking of coilovers and, budget permits, a turbo upgrade and bodykit.

What has been the most important drive of your life and why?

December 31,2007. At that time, my grandmother was admitted to the hospital. It was a few hours before we welcomed the New Year, and then we received a call from one of our relatives saying that my grandmother was in critical condition. Going there felt like the longest drive I’ve ever done.
