Over the last few decades, what we listen to in…
In this week’s post, we’re introducing you to Emme Hall, Video Host and Reviewer at TFL Car. In addition to her gig at TFL Car, Emme drives an air-cooled VW #1617 in desert races. You can catch up with her on Twitter @mmmotorsports but first check out her revved-up driving style!
How I Drive | Emme Hall
Location: Washington, DC
Daily Driver: 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata, grey with a black soft top. Name is Gazelle
Time Spent Driving/day: I average only 30-40 minutes per day, but I’ll often take drives just for fun.
Road Most Traveled: My commute is any of the arteries north to south, but I love some of the less traveled roads in Rock Creek Park. If I’m going out of town, I look for two-lane country roads. I drive across the country each year and I always try get off the interstate as much as possible if I have the time.
Driving Style in One Word: MaximumHighRevsTurboBoostFunTime
In-Car Must-Haves: Cup holders and a good stereo. I’m a diet soda addict and must have one when driving. But I’m not really one for infotainment systems and the like. I don’t have Bluetooth or navigation or anything like that. I just don’t feel like it’s necessary. My 2001 Miata had cruise control, which was nice. The Mazdaspeed doesn’t have it, so I may have something installed before I take off for California in the summer.
Driving Tunes: I have terrible taste in music. When driving for fun I like old school rap, pop dance tunes, or classic rock. My all-time favorite driving riff is the opening guitar solo from Money For Nothing by Dire Straits. If I’m just commuting I like podcasts – Stuff You Should Know is a lot of fun, and of course, Car Talk.
Time-saving technique: Why shorten the drive time? I drive a freaking Mazdaspeed Miata!!!
Hanging from rear view: Nothing. What kind of a heathen do you think I am?
