Insane Car Collections At History Con 2016

Live History, Feel History, See History! The first and absolutely one of a kind convention was recently held here in Manila. History Channel Asia just had their very first History Convention and we are very lucky that they have chosen Philippines as their venue! It is basically a four day event (held from August 25-28) which features exciting exhibits , interactive experiences, on ground activities, contests and of course, special celebrities from History channel including Giorgio Tsoukalos of Ancient Aliens.

History Con is not just about History Channel alone, they are really aiming to make history as they tried to break three world records including the longest tv marathon and the largest serving of mushroom dish. Over 50,000 people attended the said convention and considering that it was their first in the country, the amount of attendees are truly overwhelming.

One of the greatest highlights of the events are the huge collection of cars and vehicles on display. I think the exhibit of cars were done to promote one of their new shows, the Celebrity Car Wars, a reality series that features a great ensemble of celebrities and expert racers including Bobby Tonelli, Allan Wu, Andrea Fonseka, Joey Mead King, KC Montero, Marc Nelson, Piyawak Kempetch, Michele Bumgarner, Gaby Dela Merced and Alex Yoong. In fact, these cars occupied most of the exhibitors area and so I decided to put them all in a separate entry.

It is very interesting to note that my online job is about cars so even though I don’t know how to drive, I am somehow exposed in such matter. The first thing that took my attention are these muscle cars! It’s very rare to see American Muscle cars here in our country so these cars truly blown my mind!

    I was gonna pick among all the vehicles, the wave rider (runner) and often mistakenly called jetski. Tapos … BOOM! A JEEPNEY! LOL. Nakakatuwa naman, sana puro ganyan ang jeepney dito e no… tapos sigurado, ang mahal na ng pamasahe. Haha.

    OMG I would so be there at this convention, because my son is OBSESSED with cars. We’ve been to numerous car shows in the past and this one is right up his alley. I showed him the photos on your blog and he can name every care. His fave, the blue Lamborghini. Incredible since he’s only 8. Thanks for the entertaining post. (from my son too).

    I don’t understand anything about cars 😀 I know many men and women also get so excited in seeing this kind of car shows. I like that volgswagen though as it’s so cute with those flowers 🙂

    Amazing how massive the attendees were. The car collections reminded me of a fair I went to where they showcase the classic cars and even let some to ride. I tried a model ( I forgot one. haha) I am not into car and I know nothing about it but seeing the enthusiasts somehow interest me. Haha

    Volkswagen Westfalia <3 I wish I had one to travel around Europe. I would turn it into a camper and live a hippie life. When are you getting you driver's license then?
