what would be your biggest regret in life? and why?

Starting this off with a bang, arenít we? I have a few, and Iím honestly not a huge fan of sharing them publicly, but for the sake of this exercise, Iíll reveal one. My father was killed in front of me by a man trying to rob us, and he gave his life to save me from the bullet. I sometimes regret not being the one who went down, as I feel my father would have a much bigger impact on Diederich Motor Company and Boston than I have.

You've just been sent to Mars. What do you take with you and what skill do you lend to the small colony?

Iím not one to give my life for all of mankind, science will be making itís own strides soon enough that we donít really need to send people out there. I donít think Iíd be allowed to take anything, so thatís that first answer, and the second is that Iím good with my hands, building things. I suppose I could put that to use, if Mars itself doesnít kill me first.

Favorite car of all time? (I mean, I have to ask about cars, right?)

What inspires you?
I feel like this is a loaded question, because people get inspiration from various different places. What might inspire me, might be odd to someone else.

I could say the cliche ďbeauty in the world around usĒ but thatís pretty much bullshit. Weíll say advancement in science inspires me, because it usually does.
