Are you mad about motor shows? You might want to check out Chevrolet Philippines' four-day car show this weekend.
The Covenant Car Company Inc., the official distributor of Chevrolet vehicles in the country, will open the doors to its biggest motor show dubbed "2014 Chevrolet Motorama" today, October 9. Running until Sunday (October 12), the event will be held at SM Mall of Asia's ice-skating rink area. It will be open from 2pm to 10pm on October 9, and from 10am to 10pm on October 10-12. Admission is free.
So, what can you do at the American carmaker's sales-and-marketing event?
1. Check out and test-drive the latest Chevrolet vehicles. The cars are, of course, the stars of the show. So take this time to test-drive the Chevy vehicle you've been eyeing. Is it that cute Sonic? Or the luxurious Malibu? Are you looking at the macho Colorado and Trailblazer? Or the Captiva or the Spin perhaps? You have the chance to get behind the wheel of these Chevy cars.
2. Take a trip down memory lane with classic Chevrolets. The 1918 Chevrolet Light Delivery "Cowl Chassis," the American carmaker's first truck variant ever built, will be at the Motorama. The 1955 Chevrolet Pickup, the vehicle that marked the company's design progress, will be at the show for people to check out. If these trucks are not enough, you'll be delighted to know that Bumblebee--the Camaro, of course--is also in Chevrolet's lineup of car displays.
3. Witness the first-ever "Chevrolet Dealer Build-Off" competition. The nationwide dealership competition is meant "to showcase genuine creativity and craftsmanship." Participating dealers will mod up select Chevy cars. Awards, trophies and cash prizes are at stake. Visitors may vote for their picks, with the winners bagging the "People's Choice Awards."
Other awards include Best in Engine Bay Modification, Best in Paint, Best in Body Customs, and Best in Sound Setup for interior and exterior improvements. The most coveted award is the overall Best in Show.
Pick up modification ideas from the participating dealers and vote for your favorite ride!
