Congratulations on being voted GenVibe’s Member of the Month. How does it feel?
Feels pretty good. I appreciate even being nominated.

How did you find GenVibe and what made you join?
Searching the interweb one day looking for info on my new car, I stumbled upon this mecca of all things Vibe.

What is one of the more memorable things you have seen on GenVibe?
Every day I see the family like atmosphere, and that really sticks with me.

What is your favorite thing about the site?
The amount of free information and how to's that are posted. Usually, on the other sites I've been a member of, people can be downright mean when asked how to do something.

If GM brought back the Vibe what would you like to see in the new model?
More options, from CVT to 6 speed manual, from hybrid, to diesel, to petrol for fuel options.

As you know we love animals at GenVibe, do you have any pets?
I have a Black Lab, Athena. I also have children, if that counts.

You’re given $250,000 to spend only on a new car, what do you buy?
Porsche 911 GT2 RS

If you didn’t have to answer to anyone for anything, what would you do?
Speed

What’s your favorite?
Movie: Star Wars Saga
Food: Burgers
Color: Black
TV Show: NCIS
Gilligans Island cast member: Mary Ann
Game: Borderlands
Season: Summer
Sport: Not really into sports
Hobby: Modifying stuff
Book/Magazine: Cartoons
Person: The Stig
Any last words? Hope to see as many of you as possible this summer, as it's always nice to meet those who share interests in the things you do.

You couldn't possibly be referring to the JBO with that statement !

(removed)! The kids comment literally made me laugh out loud !

Congratulations Andrew! Very well deserved! Thanks again to you and your wife for getting the wheels in motion for our big (hopefully!) meet this summer ! I'm looking forward to meeting you and your wife and checking out that beautiful Vibe of yours in person !

Don't know what you are talking about... I reside in Ohio... in a county that has no inspections... where it doesn't cost $75 per year per car for tags.

LOL I'm not the only one around here with Ohio plates too!!! I worked with guys in Erie who "live" in Akron. (removed)

Uh Huh...... you'll be fine until you have an accident and the insurance company (which NEVER want to pay out money BTW) does some elementary investigation and finds out that you've been fraudulently telling them you live somewhere else. Odds are that if this happens, it won't be pretty and could cost you way more than $75 per year!

Been in an accident, insurance didn't care one bit. Came to the house and everything. LOL
Was for the Sunfire GT. with 3 colleges in town, they don't say too much about out of town plates.

Good for you, hope that fraud works out for you long term. It's a great way to live life and teach honesty and moral values to your children.

Big difference, that's NOT illegal.
It is only illegal if you are a retailer and ripping the tags off BEFORE you sell them.

Best of luck to you, congrats on being the MOTM!
