Here's another trivia on FPJ. From the column, Studio Whispers by Ethelwolda Ramos /Published at Kislap Graphic, December 12, 1962
There is one story about Ronnie which he loves to recall. Ronnie makes a point to go to church with his family every Sunday. One Sunday, on their way home, they happened to pass a car exchange and Ronnie’s mama, spotting a 1962 Impala, said, “That’s the car I’d like to own!” The following morning, the same car was seen parked in front of the Poe residence in Quezon City. Proudly, Ronnie presented it as a gift to his mama.
