What inspires you?

Intelligence, cleverness, curiosity, innovative thought, kindness and people who know how to be themselves and still give respect to others around them.

Dream Car:

1965 Aston Martin DB5, silver. But since that's completely out of reach, I'll settle for a 1965 MG MGB Mark II Convertible Roadster, cherry red or British racing green because that's a dream I plan on making reality one day.
