First car: "It was a 1974 AMC Spirit that I bought fresh out of high school. Then I drove it to college - Ohio State - and two weeks after I got there, the latch on the hatch broke. Everything was stolen, including all the new college books I had just bought."
Dream Car: "A really hot Lexus convertible. Two-seater. They're just gorgeous. I'd love to have one."
