    OT.
    That Maserati was an impressive showoff at edsa.
    is that a Granturismo?

    May existing laws na sa illegal modifications, walalang talaga enforcement. What annoys me are those "siento bente" open pipe scoots. Once a pedestrian natapat sa mukha ung sonic boom ng exhaust, then yung late night sleeping time may dadaan sa kalye.. very irritating.

    syempre grandstand. Parang pasay pakiramdam dahil pag may events gathering jan lagi sa roxas boulevard 1980s to early 90s

    My childhood biking wide wide open space cultural center philippines at skating yung paikot-ikot sa roxas boulevard I forgot saan yun near open cinema.

    Every sunday always luneta. Kain itlog ng pugo, balut at bibili softdrinks doon tindahan na puro pipi/bingi. May pinupuntahan pa ako sa left side na restaurant dahil nakikinuod basketball. Im a purefoods fan, ang kalaban ko mga smb fan their grandslam years. Im in my elementary years pero mga matatanda na kumakanchaw sa akin.

    I think more than 30years na ata ako last nakapasok luneta. Dahil nagkwento ako ngayon gusto ko makita ulit. Maybe bago matapos taon.

    The start of the 90s nalipat ang trend sa subic and eventually greenhills.

    From innocent recreational luneta to a material life px goods

    malamang ay dahil hindi pumayag ang traffic bureau na sa edsa gawin ang event.

    how will it be judged that the sound is excessively or unreasonably loud?
    will there be a special audio instrument?
    or will it be, literalmente, "oido" ?

    Thats why I fear the overzealousness of those who lack a bit of intelligence. A concern will be those who have exotic cars with OEM exhaust systems. Tatanggalin ba nila yun?

    i read before,
    this certain high end sports car manufacturer confesses that they take great pains in designing their mufflers, to make their cars sound good.

    i can see it now...
    "kap, hindi yan modified. na-butas lang yan kanina nung dumaan ako sa mataas na hump at natamaan yung muffler..."

    I can’t figure out why they have to confiscate it. Why not just give them a hefty fine? If you remove them, nothing will “muffle” the explosive engine noise.
