What's your dream car?
A 1940s Woody Wagon with a beach close by.
Why are cars important?
It's not just about cars; it's about understanding the pride and respect in owning them. There's a lot to be said about the hard work and dedication that goes into not only the car, but how the car owner continues the tradition and teaches the next generation about taking the time to maintain what they have and feel good about their hard work and effort.
What's your favorite car memory?
Camping in my Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme with my friend Sara back in high school. We'd bet her brother we'd make it outside all night. Rather than admit defeat and go back to the house, we slept in the Cutlass. Those seats are like benches – add a sleeping bag and it's actually pretty comfy.

How have cars affected your relationships?
I challenge anyone to tell me that a car isn't a lot like a marriage. You invest in them, they both take a lot of work, you hit a few bumps, they leave you scratching your head, they carry your baggage, they pass the time with you. They see you at your best and worst, but at the end of the day they're still your best friend and you wouldn't trade it in for a newer model no matter what, because it's always been there, and as long as you keep fine tuning it and take care of it, it will last.
