Must-see photos from Hot Import Nights 3 Manila

Cars and babes, of course

Last week, I got a text from Total Philippines corporate communications manager Iris Reyes, who also happens to be an old friend of mine. Her company was a major sponsor at the recently concluded Hot Import Nights 3 Manila at Metrowalk in Ortigas Center, and would I be interested in dropping by? I immediately said yes. I'd love to go for, er, editorial purposes.

So yesterday, I found myself bombarded with a million decibels of competing sound systems, and surrounded with more eager male "photographers" than a camera convention. Iris met me at the gate and accompanied me inside the venue. The vibe was a little too loud and crowded for me (I don't like conversations conducted through yelling), but maybe I'm just getting old.

But after some time, I got used to the noise and started to enjoy the upbeat motoring atmosphere. First stop of course was the Total Philippines area, easily the most prominent booth inside the tent; it even had its own DJ playing club music. On display at the booth was a macho Chevrolet Camaro from Darfsman Autohaus and a classic Mustang Shelby Cobra.

Of course, there were girls. Men of all ages were snapping away intently at several ladies clad in red and white. I also noticed a video of Total's booth babes being shown on the big screen behind the DJ. I was impressed that the French petroleum company made an effort.

A teaser poster also hinted at an upcoming product in May. I asked Iris about it and she just smiled and said it was a secret. So watch out for something new from Total next month.

In the meantime, here are the notable girls and cars from the event. Enjoy!
