Five beauties TV personalities Jojo Struys and Daphne Iking, 8TV Quickie host Megan Tan as well as RedFM DJs Linora Low and Mynn Lee posed with 13 four-wheeled classic cars during the photo contest yesterday.
Friends Lee Shing Yaw, 45, and Frederick Francis, 40, were among the first to arrive at the contest's first stop at Central Market.
“I am looking forward to taking pictures of classic cars with Struys because I've never had the chance to snap pictures of her with cars before,” Lee said.
The two friends also followed the rally to its other venues Sunway Pyramid and Alamanda Putrajaya. The three locations were the venue sponsors for the rally.
