Q: Hi Mim! Welcome to Defend Your Ride New York. What brings you here today?

A: Very nice weather. I’m here with my wife and two children, ages five and two, on Morningside Drive with my new Mercedes C350.

Q: Beautiful car. Whose idea was it to get a Mercedes?

A: Whose idea do you think it was?

Q: How did you choose the car?

A: Worked weekends, worked two and three jobs. Worked, worked and then I worked. But she takes care of our kids and I know that’s the harder job.

Q: If your car had a human emotion, what would it be and why? For example, happy, grumpy, sexy, angry, lazy, tired, smart, immature, proud or shy?

A: Maybe all of the above because when you look at it, this car has everything you can think of!

Q: What do you like to listen to in the car?

A: I myself like to listen to classic blues, but the kids like the new pop.

Q: What’s the main use for your car? How much time do you spend in it?

A: It’s only for pleasure and only a few thousand miles per year.

Q: Mim, if you could get a brand new car today, your dream car, what would it be?

A: It would be a Mercedes. It’s true what they say, when you drive one a few times, you get to know the difference–especially when you’re driving 60 mph. This is a true story: A wheel from another car in front of me came off and I was able to, with great ease, just maneuver around it. I think it’s awesome.
