Albay VG Lagman touts his 29-year-old battle car
Albay Vice Governor Edcel Grex Lagman flexed his battle car for almost 30 years which bore witness to some of his significant milestones in life.
“Kasama ko siya throughout my law school years nung mid- and late-90s, through my ups and downs at siyempre in all my ‘In Between Days,” he said.
“Dito ako nakasakay nung naka-park ako along Padre Faura sa tapat ng UP Manila adjacent sa Supreme Court nung lumabas results ng 2000 Bar Exams. Awa ng Diyos pumasa naman,” he added.
“Tapos dalian kong pinaayos siya para sa mga court hearings ko at kase daw dapat pogi ang tsikot ng abogado para mas makasingil ng malaki sa mga kliyente. Pero BMW pala yung wheels na tinutukoy! Damn! Haha At syempre okay na yung starter at may aircon na rin. Hehe,” he continued.
Lagman also said that he used that car for all of his electoral campaign. Three of which were in Quezon City and two in Albay. He won in all of the elections.
“But, most of all, this was my late mama’s car. Thanks, pading Jerry Po for the excellent body repair and paint job and to Marvin of Becker Automotives for the finishing touches. Mama’s name has yet to be painted. Hopefully by upcoming Albay painter Ms. Djai Tanji,” he said.
“My Mazda B2200 Pickup truck, 1992 model. All original. Except for the Ford Everest 2.5L diesel engine. Battle-tested,” he added.
