Q: Welcome to Defend Your Ride Connecticut, everyone’s favorite autos feature about the everyday driver. Thanks for participating Keith. Now let’s get right into it with some rapid fire questions starting with which neighborhood do you live in? What’s your zip code? How old are you? In that order.

A: Interesting. I live in Springfield, Massachusetts 01107. Twenty-three.

Q: What is your car’s main use?

A: Commuting to work. Currently it’s not that far. It’s about five to 10 miles.

Q: What’s your favorite day trip from home?

A: Mohegan Sun Casino.

Q: Where’s the farthest place that you’ve ever driven?

A: Probably Maine.

Q: Maine!? Do you have any rules in your car?

A: Just that I get to pick the music! Primarily indie and some punk.

Q: You don’t seem like a punk sort of guy. What is your car’s nickname?

A: I like Silver Bullet. It’s kind of like, if there was a werewolf, how would you kill it? Silver Bullet!

Q: Bang! And a human emotion, what would your car’s be?

A: Really? I would describe it as messy.

Q: Yum. So where did you get this lovely Subaru Impreza. Did you buy it new?

A: I purchased it after my last Subaru died.

Q: So that would mean your next car will be?

A: Realistically, I like Subarus. I think if I would continue buying Subarus, I would get a WRX!

Q: OK, Keith, you punk listening, Subaru driving, gambling madman, is there anything else we should know about your awesome car?

A: It’s all-wheel drive and it’s nice to drive in the snow! That’s why I like Subarus.
