By Jeanette Ipapo -Tuason Philippine Daily Inquirer June 16,2019


He probably taught you how to drive, gave you your first car, and went with you to claim your first violation ticket. They say that fathers have an immense effect on a child’s independence, and ambition, reason why offsprings follow their father’s profession. He is your first love, first super hero, and the voice that pushes you to break barriers which complements your mother’s vote of confidence.

Part of Filipino children’s grown-up bucket list includes giving back to their parents, to show gratitude for all the sacrifices made and a common milestone is giving Dad his dream car.

We rounded up some celebrities’ and car executives’ wish list of what dream car they would like to gift their Dads.

I would give my dad a Mercedes Benz Gruma Hunter because he’s a shooter and loves to go hunting…. but in Molokai, Hawaii.

If you had the chance to meet my Dad and then get to know him, you would know that he likes everything a certain way. He likes a routine, so not too big on surprises. Ever since I was a kid, he would always drive a Cadillac and a Suburban. He really loved big comfortable cars. So if I had to pick a car for my Dad, I would choose the latest Chevrolet Suburban. Fully loaded, in black. Just the way he used to like it.

When my Dad was still alive. He was so in love with the ‘67-‘69 Mercedes Benz 280SL ‘Mr. Slim.’ He would often mention to us that it was his dream car.

My Dad was always a BMW fan. I would buy him an M5. Because that is how I remember him. Classy, ”mayabang,” and fast. I miss him to bits…

Fabio Ide Entrepreneur, Celebrity and Racecar Driver
Ever since I was a kid my Dad always dreamt of having a BMW. I remember driving with him to my basketball game and every time we would pass one he would mention and say that one day he would have one. Unfortunately, he still hasn’t got one and I really hope through my hard work I will be able to surprise him one day.
