Just got back from the phillippines. This is the legendary Jeepney, body is based on American surplus jeeps sold to Filipinos after the US army left the islands post-WWII. Engines are Isuzu truck engines, mostly gas 4-cyl, 2.4L fuel-injected units. Jeepneys are decorated by the owner, with custom interior and exterior, airbrush paintjob, etc. Some are used like small private buses, and can be stretched to hold 10-12 people. The driver runs regular routes and accepts payment just like public buses, but there are so many of them that they often compete for riders. They also cause traffic problems by stopping in the middle of the street to pick up/unload passengers. When you get on the jeepney, you ask passengers in front of you to pass your money up to the driver, then they pass your change back to you, all by hand.

Lemons into lemonade? I wish we had that kind of trust here. Passing change back. I guarantee that wouldn't happen too often here.

It's like phillipine bosozoku.

I have always liked these. Mercedes 190E. They were made back in the late 80s and early 90s, but a good one can still go for 8-10K. This one was automatic, but the exterior, wheels, and slight lowering made it a real beauty.
