Angel Locsin confirms donation of her 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle to super typhoon victims

Angel Locsin has a brainstorm for showbiz colleagues: Why not auction off the extra cars that they seldom use, and use the proceeds to build evacuation centers and schools in disaster areas?


Angel Locsin has confirmed that she is donating her 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle to benefit the victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda.

The actress made the revelation during the November 14 episode of Kris TV.

"Naisip ko na noon pa," Angel told host Kris Aquino.

"Ang idea ko nga sana diyan, tayong mga nasa industriya, meron tayong mga extra car kadalasan.

"Yung hindi natin nagagamit, i-donate natin, and maghanap tayo ng sponsor na magse-setup, tapos ipapa-auction, para makagawa ng magandang evacuation centers o eskuwelahan."

Kris mentioned that this information was reported by PEP, and later verified by Tina Monzon-Palma, head of Sagip Kapamilya programs of ABS-CBN Foundation Inc.

Angel explained, "Isu-surrender ko lang ang car sa Sagip Kapamilya.

"Sabi ko sa kanila, ’Sa inyo ito. Kung anong maging plano ninyo, okay ako.’

"Pambuo sana ito ng mga eskuwelahan, kasi nasira ang mga schools nila, so yun ang gagawing budget sana."

John Lapus, who served as a guest co-host on Kris TV this morning, added that this car is the same model driven by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the movie Fast and Furious 6.

Angel, meanwhile, appealed to motoring journalists to write about the auction of her car.

She added: "All original body kit po ’yan.

"Sana suportahan ito ng mga mahihilig sa kotse, kasi for charity naman—para ito sa tao talaga."

Why does Angel have a 1970 car?

"Pangarap ko kasi talaga yun, e.

"Pumunta ako ng America para hanapin ang kotse na yun, mga two years na siguro."

But she has let go of it, why?

"Nahiya kasi ako na may ganitong luho habang may ganitong trahedya."
