The devastation left by Typhoon Haiyan (Typhoon Yolanda as the locals would call it) in the Philippines left many families with no homes, food, lost loved ones, or anything else. Imagine in a blink of an eye, everything you knew and love now gone. One way or another every single one of us was affected by the devastation. With the upcoming holiday season, it makes us wonder how we can help those affected by the massive typhoon. Team Sagana has teamed up with various organizations to bring you the “Hope for P.I: Typhoon Relief Car Show”. The event will be on December 21st from 11am-4pm, at the Arena Sports Bar and Grill in Bremerton. We will be selling various merchandise during the event and 100% of all proceeds will go to help in the disaster relief. We are working with the Philippines local media network ABS-CBN’s TulongPH and Global Giving Foundation to assure the proceeds made at this event will help those affected.

Another successful show in the books for Team Sagana. 2013 has so far been really good to the Team as they carefully choose which shows they will enter their cars into. The newest addition to the team is Reggie’s 1987 Toyota Corolla GTS Coupe (Trueno). Again, this show failed to disappoint since the nostalgic car scene is alive and well. Cars that we knew growing up were well represented and most seem like they just came off of the factory assembly line. It was not just Japanese nostalgic cars in the show, there was a great showing of Euro cars. What a day it was. It was an overall good time not just for Team Sagana, but also for everyone in attendance, most of which were the older generation who can relive their childhood.

One of Team Sagana’s members took a trip back to the birthplace of Sagana which is the Philippines. It was a great trip to help promote the Sagana name and to check out the automotive scene. Things have changed since the 2010. With the craze of the Stance styling, the Philippine people took this trend and ran with it. Still in its infancy, there is potential that this trend is here to stay in the Philippines since there is a plethora of Japanese Nostalgic Cars. Give the Philippines some time and we will start looking to the filipino people for some ideas for some properly stance’d rides. Along with the Stance’d cars, there were several full on race drift cars and some nice clean motor swaps. From lifted pickup trucks to tricked out euro cars, the show seemed to have it all. The few exceptions could be made for performance tuned cars. There were only a few performance built cars since the attention for most of the builds were geared more towards the way the car looked and a few bolt on dress up parts. Nonetheless, clean and loud seemed to be the theme for the show.

Back in September 2nd 2012, Team Sagana had the privilege to showcase what the team represents by showcasing 3 cars at Griots Garage for their annual PSTOC Toyota Fest Event. In 2011, the Team received honors for their cars. 2012 was no different as the Team scored 2 out of the 3 awards possible for group. Team Sagana’s youngest member took home the Best MK III Supra and then his father took home best RWD Celica. Unfortunately there were no AE86 awards handed out, 2013 will just make the team work a little bit harder to get the accolades that are very well deserved.
