Back-to-school, back with barkadas& a Dream Family Car at Wheels TV
School is just around the corner as June comes within the next few days. The kids are thinking baon and barkada---and the parents? Likely dreaming of buying a car to bring the young ones to school then themselves to work.
In this week’s “Wheels TV” airing on May 30, Ulysses Ang presents an option as he drives the all-new Mobilio, touted as Honda’s barkada or family-friendly car. This 7-seater baby is said to have state-of-the-art design and innovative features that will surely make Dad (or Mom) want to honk the horn with pride just to make sure everyone’s looking when a member alights from it. Talk about a grand arrival. Not only a family-friendly car, Mobilio also fits for barkadas, be it a school barkadas or neighborhood barkadas or any kind of barkadas for that matter. Talk about great room for bonding.
What car clubs are around? Ulysses and Angel Rivero ride with the Harley Davidson Club and the Subaru Society, respectively. The first is a by-invite-only club that’s been around locally since 1994 built on the principle of camaraderie and diversity; while the second represent all Subaru cars and owners. Vroom-vroom goes the VIPs, indeed.
It’s not everyday that you see a car built out of a junk but “Wheels TV” sure knows how to find them. See what a little team work can do as KapMaceda-Aguila meets a group of students that are into the idea of building something from almost nothing. It’s not a throw away segment, that’s for sure.
"Wheels TV" airs on ABS-CBN Sports + Action Channel every Saturday at 10 a.m.
Gorgeous designs and one great dine-in down south
