According to Grab Philippines’ Country Marketing Head Khriz Lim, the activity is part of the month-long celebration of their 4th year anniversary, which aims to delight their passengers and thank them for the support throughout the four years.

"Grab continues to revolutionize the way people move by sending different transport options to our passengers with a few taps on their smartphones. But as we look forward to more years, we also want to look back and give our passengers a timeless transport experience unique only to vintage cars," said Grab Philippines' Country Marketing Head, Khriz Lim.
