Interview with Zachary Levi

Back in 2006, I wrote articles for the now-defunct web magazine Oversteer. My proudest moment was interviewing Zachary Levi, and I figured now he's a big Hollywood star it would be a good time to dust that article off. It was a car magazine, so obviously that's the focus of the interview!

Q. First things first: what are you currently driving?
A. Audi TT.

Q. Did you pass your driving test first time?
A. I did.

Q. What was the first car you ever owned?
A. 1985 Chrysler 5th Avenue. A hoopty POS.
Q. A hoopty POS?
A. Hoopty means junker, and POS means piece of shit.

Q. What about motorbikes?
A. I own two: a Harley and a Ducati. I enjoy them very much. Probably too much.
Q. What kind of motorbikes are they?
A. My Harley is a 2000 Dynaglide/Superglide/Sport/Custom. Fast and heavy. My Ducati is 2002 Monster 750. It was my first bike, and still possibly my favourite. It's just a great all around ride.

Q. If money were no object, what car(s) would you own?
A. Hmmm... I guess... all of them.

Q. Have you ever been caught speeding?
A. About a dozen times, with the tickets to show for it.
Q. Haven't you had your licence taken away?
A. You can lose your licence for tickets if you get three in one year. But fortunately I've been able to spread them out. Just barely though.

Q. Do you suffer from road rage?
A. No, more road annoyance.

Q. Would you take part in an impromptu drag race to win the girl?
A. Not yes, but hell yes.

Q. If you pranged someone in a car park and nobody saw you do it, would you admit it or would you drive away?
A. Admit to it. It's the right thing to do. And I would hope that someone would do the same for me.

Q. How many cars have you ever written off, if any?
A. Don't know what written off means.
Q. It means crashed beyond repair.
A. No, thank God, I've never written off a car. In fact, with the exception of a few fender benders, I've never been in a major accident.

Q. What do you think of the Toyota Prius?
A. I love it. Thinking about getting one myself.

Q. What CD do you currently have in your car?
A. Keane - Hopes And Fears

Q. Finally, if you could only drive one car ever again, what would it be?
A. Not sure, but maybe the Supercharged Range Rover Sport. It's a little bit of everything.
