the Premiere Mitsubishi Enthusiasts Club of the Philippines, MyMitsu (www.mymitsuph.com)

Id just like to share some pics.

Wow! JDM bumpers everywhere! Next time I'm there, I need to figure out how to bring a nose clip back with me. Is Banaue still full of "surplus" japanese parts?

@kama1 - Hahaha I knew this would get your attention!

Guys if you look closely at the group shot, there's actually at least 2 GVR4.org members there, and about
6 (including myself and Kama1)forumers (for obvious reasons since we haven't been to the US we couldn't
join as official members. If you know Telecaster, he's in the pic as well!

The shirts, I'll look into it, MMPH has a few members based in the US as well, if they'll be getting
shirts, we may be able to send out some Packer shirts as well.

Yes Banawe still has tons of surplus parts from Japan, although for the Galants, they are slowly
getting pretty hard to come by nowadays. Kama1 just buys the entire car whether running or not
and just parts out everything to those in need of parts!

The Packers. ok when we started out about 3 years ago as a sub group of MMPH, there were only about 5 of us at the time. We needed a good name, I was actually studying japanese words that we could use, but they all sounded like crap. I wanted somthing associated directly with "6" since our cars being the 6th generation of the Galant. I pitched the 6G Pack, as in Six Pack of beers, it caught on and immediately becames the Packers.

But it did become a very fitting name though, because we usually ride in Packs, as in minimum of about 4 cars. We hang out like 3 times a week thursdays, fridays and sundays (DIY Day or Cookout day). We've managed to do a lot of stuff when we hang out at the local gas station. We do our tune ups, tinker with the interiors, managed to upgrade the brakes on a 2g eclipse one time. This was all done between 12mn to about 4am mostly during sundays! Hahaha!

We join monthly drag meets, hillclimb races and the occasional trackdays. (There are only 2 tracks in the Philippines so far so everytime they hold an open trackday we try to join the fun.

We are all roadtrip junkies, for those of you familiar with the Philippines, we went to Baguio last year. Its a mountain province thats considered the summer capital of teh Philippines due to its cold climate. It usually takes about 8 hours to get there, but since we wanted to take the scenic route, we travelled all along the Philippines northern coastline to get to the mountaintop. The regular route would take you through about 5 provinces before going to Baguio, we took the route that ket us pass about 9!
Took us about 18 hours but it was sheer driving pleasure! But there are some trips that we cut the travel time too, we managed to cut a 6 hour trip to La Union(another Northren province) to about a little under 4 hours when we were about to compete in the Hillclimb races. I'd love to post some of the pics from our previous trackdays and other events here if it would not be considered Off Topic.

Went over and checked out things theres some sweet pictures in the gallery. Question what is the little black plastic deal above the front licence plate some kind of addition bumper guard. Just asking never seen one before.


Also you better watch out with the gas station phrases SteveGLS (admin formally known as SteveVR4 aka Steff) does bad things in Gas stations. Just ask around.

i think those things are license plate holders
their plates are wider and wouldn't fit the canal of the bumper, just like here and in japan

notice the bumper extension trim below the license plate for the IC?

We'll see what we can do about the shirts. I'm working on a new design as well. A white shirt this time, so the prints would come out better. They had to use silk screen since they couldn't do computer prints on black shirts.
