For Hipolito, owning a unique jeepney is a dream come true. He spent more than a million pesos in his jeepney which was made and assembled in Bulacan.

He said he worked as a passenger jeepney driver in Ilocos Norte before immigrating in Hawaii with his family.




"Dati kasi nagdra-drive ako ng Laoag-Piddig. Inambisyon ko rin na balang araw, magkakaroon din ako ng kakaibang sasakyan,” Hipolito said.

Unfortunately for those who want to try riding in the said jeepney, It is neither for rent nor for public transportation but for family use when they are in the Philippines for vacation.
