Thanks! Not a lot. A total of 10 units (s550 GT500) were shipped to Manila. No more. That's it for a country with 110mil population. I feel really fortunate to own one.

It's great to see other country's enjoying gt500 ownership. Being so rare, your Shelby must really turn some heads 👍

Done! Hoosiers are great. About as fast as Cup2R. Probably a second or two faster than cup2. Consistent lap times despite Manila 100 degree heat.

That is great! I used to listen to the great Art Bell on Coast to Coast AM and Midnight in the Desert, when he was alive. He lived in the Philippines (Manila) for several years and absolutely loved it.

Good Morning.

I got to your neighborhood 3-4 times... Clark Air Force Base.

It does get 'warm' there for certain, also with some humidity! I would 'jump' around there from Guam and the Marshal Islands.
Just how did you get land a GT500 there! Surprised, I am.

Enjoy the thing to its Maximum.

Oh wow. Were you in the military? Our racetrack is in Clark Airbase. So I'm there a lot! The Ford Philippines management decided to bring in 10 units officially. Other Ford vehicles here are mostly the south east asia models (everest, rangers, ecosport) built in their Thailand manufacturing plant. Ford is big here! Top 3 definitely in total units sold next to Toyota

…..I have spent time at Clark as well as Cebu… good times…
I would say it was a nice base to visit. I was there a couple times on IG Inspections.
… and other times as HQ AF ICAP's.
( Infrastructure Condition Assessment Program, Lead... to evaluate infrastructure for amount of funding to receive for maintenance and repairs each year )
(see Tim, we have more in common than you know)

I was before retiring in Aug '13, 'The HQ USAF Command Engineer'... spent a considerable amount of time traveling to AF bases around the world and CONUS as part of Inspection Programs. Deciding where our funding allocations would best be distributed, solving issues, creating construction projects, managing projects, creating policy across the AF CE sections. ...IIRC, was provide with some type of Toyota by the base when there! ( hey, maybe, if I go back to the job and return to Clark, I could use one of the 10 GT500 to ride around in) It was one of the 'cleaner' bases I have been on, I do recall that.
Prior to that way, way back in the mid '60's spent my time in the US Army as an Airborne Ranger.
Went from an E1 (private) to a (Lt Col) GS15 for the Air Force...

Sounds like a pretty nice gig you have there. Do you ever get here to the States?
