    Hindi na status symbol kotse ngayon para sakin, simpleng empleyado nga nakaka avail na ng brand new kotse or 2nd hand na medyo modelo, yung mga ilang squatter nga ngayon de kotse na, kasi yung pinag lumaan ng middle class sila nakakabili tsaka yung mga ex taxi.

    Noong unang panahon mga 70's 80's status symbol yan like yung mga corona macho o hardtop , corolla liftback or DX, lancer box type, galant zigma, celeste yan pa mga sikat noon etc. During that time mga nilalait torona, cortina, toyopet, escort.

    Kahit brand lang minsan nilalait eh.

    Last week, yung kasama ko sa TPH nabangga ng Honda CR-V. Medyo malakas yung pagkaka-bangga sa kanya kasi walang preno-preno yung driver ng CR-V. Ang dahilan nung driver nung CR-V "Malayo daw iniisip niya kaya hindi napansin na nag-u-turn yung friend ko. So yung friend ko gusto niya palitan sana lahat ng damaged parts kasi yupi talaga yung rear bumper at daming scratches ng mags. Naiba pa yung alignment ng rear wheel sa lakas ng impact.

    Itong isang lalaki na naka-midsize Thailand made SUV naki-usisa at parang pinalalabas niya na bakit daw ang arte nung friend ko e "Magkano lang naman daw yung "Hyundai Tucson" (Hindi siguro napansin or hindi alam na Premium package din yung sa friend ko)

    Friend ko: "Pare, alam mo bang mas mahal pa 'to diyan sa F&*$^!*# mo"

    Thailand made midsize SUV owner: "Magkano ba kuha mo diyan?"

    Friend ko: "1.7M, yung sa'yo magkano?"

    Thailand made midsize SUV owner: Nag-walk out....
    Ang OA naman nyang naka SUV na yan. Uusisa tapos pa walk out walk out pa. Di nakabalandra pa sha, dagdag sa trapik. Di ba sha natakot sa pwedeng gawin sa trak nya?

    Kahit Kia CD5 na maliit, di dapat mahiya. basta di naman nakaw. Huwag lang maangas.

    *Shadow when a person has more than enough cash to pay off his obligations, and still has disposable cash good enough to build a mansion for herself, maintains an account that she doesnt need but just to save for whatever contingencies. When her parents left an estate that includes money in the bank but she doesnt spend as she herself is self reliant. Those stuff known among friends. Passbook is not the only way to know if a person is liquid. It is not even an indication that one is. Because when you say liquid you have more than enough cash to pay every obligation. If you have lots of high end cars but cant pay them on time, that's being insolvent. Malagkit pa yan sa rugby.

    Pero why discriminate at the first place?

    Porke ba naka LC200 o BMW X5 e' pagbibigyan mo na kung tirahin yang Fortuner mo?

    Tama.

    At I don't find anything " fishy " about the description " Thailand-made SUV "

    Lait na pala yun ngayon?

    So lait na rin yung " European-made coupe " ? Haha.

    Weird. ;)

    I was referring doon sa tucson versus fort halos parehas lang naman presyo variant lang nagkakatalo, nag pataasan pa sila ng ihi.

Do people discriminate against old cars?
