    So this past October my dad got reassigned to work in the Philippines, and because of that I came halfway across the world to this crazy series of islands in Southeast Asia to visit him and my mom for Christmas. It's really fun here, and somehow the 13 hour time difference between here and Michigan hasn't really affected me at all, but this isn't a topic about that.

    Without further ado, here are some awesome pictures of my Filipino vacation so far, and feel free to share pictures of your recent activities as well! Let's get ready for the new, improved, awesome
    PYP TOPIC!!!
    Remember, PYP rules still apply, if we go more than one page without a picture the topic gets closed by my good friends the mods, and these pictures have to either be of you or pictures you've taken of friends, family, or scenery. Basically, no random internet things you find and want to share.

    Haha. That looks like a blast.

    P.S. Nice chewbacca tattoo. I don't like the look of the other characters so much though. Post a better pic of that if you feel like it (not that I want to turn this into another tattoo topic).

    Sam, me and you have got to go to the Philippines together and tour the "massage" circuit. You can be my guide, as I am sure you have already frequented those fine establishments.

    That's a pretty nice car. Though I gotta say, my mustang's sexier. Well, it will be once we get it repainted. Stupid mom, can't drive for shit.

    That picture manages to hide the fact that it needs to be repainted, too. Not the panels, but all the plastics. Mainly just from wear and tear - it's almost 9 years old, and was living in the sun most of its life.

    I love it though. Has the most comfortable seats i've ever felt in a car, very fast (only a little slower than your GT 0-60) and handles.
    Best part is when guys in V8s scoff and laugh because they think my puny V6 powered sedan can't beat their 5.7L commodores. Seems like none of them notice the fact that the cams are so big it shakes and almost stalls at idle.


    You done anything to your mustang, yet? Or just leaving it stock?

    Mostly just leaving it stock, save for a custom paint job and some exhaust stuff.

    Regardless, it works just fine how I need it. I'm hardly going faster than 80 or so, and it accelerates pretty damn well. And the gas mileage ain't half bad. It isn't a GT, so in a race scenario, you could probably beat me, but it still hauls some serious ass.


    The best part about it though is that bitches love it.

    That's a sweet car there madster, but I'd have to say, do away with the spoiler. They don't call them spoilers for nothing, they totally spoil the appearance of the car. Unless of course they come stock, but when they come stock they're usually not that big

    The only thing not standard on my car is the wheels, exhaust and tint.
    It's a Ralliart Magna - one of roughly 500 left in existence. It's basically taken parts from the Evo and bolted them on.
