Motor/Mouth is a bi-weekly series featuring WFMU staff and their rides. This week we focus on that Number One Hit-maker, Michael Shelley, heard Saturdays, 10 AM - 1 PM... and we remind you this is the last day of Marathon 2009 - so PLEDGE! Don't forget the big Hoof & Mouth Finale begins tonight around 7 PM and you can join us in person at Maxwell's in Hoboken, NJ (yes, the public is welcome!).
Main form of transportation: 2007 Honda Fit.
Mileage: about 30,000
Where did you get it? Dealership in Caldwell, NJ
What made you pick it? had the proper ratio of reliability/cost and the salesman at the Toyota dealership across the street was rude to us.
How long have you owned it? Since Oct 2006.
How much longer will you keep it? Not sure - but probably till at least Oct 2011.
Favorite thing about it: It has not broken or needed any service besides the regular oil changes etc.
Least favorite thing about it: Impossible to lock/unlock all doors from anywhere but drivers side AND no aux plug for my iPod.
What is your dream form of transportation? Fly like a bird.
Anything else you’d like to mention: About a dozen strangers have stopped me on the street, in parking lots etc, to ask me about it. CD player has an interesting feature: as you accelerate the volume automatically goes up. While Driving on the Garden State Parkway someone dropped a brick on the windshield.
