Just the thing for art or emergencies

Ned Stern loves his 2003 Infinity FX35 because it has plenty of room for his paintings of Cincinnati skylines, portraits and landscapes. The Blue Ash artist also works with the Cincinnati Red Cross disaster team and responds to emergencies in his SUV/sedan hybrid.

"I go to tornadoes, floods, fires. I respond to emergencies whenever and wherever they happen," Stern says. "I researched it for three months before I bought it. It's a weird looking car, but I'm weird looking, too."

First Car: A 1950 Nash Rambler convertible. "It was terrible. I bought it with three different-sized tires and a hole in the floorboard."

Dream Car: A Ferrari Enzo, as long he could afford to maintain it. "My dream car changes from time to time, depending on what I am going to do. It would have to be fast and handle well."
