Bridget Hohmann’s got a brand new rig with 4-wheel-drive. Country folks can survive.

How did you find Runde Auto Group and this particular vehicle? 
 Through Al Kloft I told him what I was looking for and he went and found it for me. I bought a Trailblazer and my brother bought a vehicle from Al not too long ago too.

Why did you decide to purchase it here?  Because I found what I liked and because I’ve known Al for a long time.  He’s a family friend so I trusted him. And I liked it so I said yah I’d buy it.

Where is the first place you’ll take your new car?
I don’t know … probably work. Really? Yah I have have work at 9 o’clock tonight.

 Where do you work at?
At The Barn in Sherrill — it’s a bar and a restaurant up there.

 I used to go up to the barn a long time ago — we played a couple gigs up there back in the day.
Yah, that was when V.J. owned it and now his son runs the place. (Check out the link to The Barn’s FaceBook Page)

Is your vehicle a male or female? 

And will you give it a name?

Why not? 
I don’t know. (shrugs) I never named any of my cars.

How many vehicles have you owned so far in your life?  

 How often do you usually trade in your cars? 
This is the first time I’ve ever traded and bought something new. 

So you usually keep your vehicles until they die? 

What’s the best thing about your new ride? 
It’s bigger and it has four-wheel-drive.

If you were a vehicle, what vehicle would you want to be? 
Probably … I don’t know, it’s a tough question … probably a truck because it’s big.

Will your friends or anyone be allowed to eat in your new Trailblazer? 
Yes.  Are you sure?  Yah.  (Wow, we’ve asked that question to many customers before and we usually get a “Nope” response back.  I wasn’t expecting that answer.)

Al Kloft of Runde Auto Group in Hazel Green

Al Kloft

How would you rate your vehicle buying experience with Runde Auto Group on a scale of 1 to 35 with 35 being the best? 
 I’d say it was probably a 31. 

And Al Kloft was your salesman — so how would you rate Al? 
The best.  He was awesome, I liked working with Al.

If something unfortunate were to happen to Al and he could no longer be a car salesman, do you think he would make a better News Anchorman, Game Show Host, or State Representative? 
Definitely a game show host.

And which game show would he be best at hosting; The Price is Right, Deal or No Deal, or that one about being smarter than a 5th grader? 
The 5th grader one. (she smiles) 

You know I think just the contestants have to show how smart they are so he’d probably be safe as the host.  Yep. (she nods and grins)

What is your favorite movie of all time? 
Fried Green Tomatoes. 

Really?  Do you like the Fried Green Tomatoes restaurant too?
  I know that there’s a nice restaurant named Fried Green Tomatoes.  I haven’t been there, but I really like the movie.  It’s easily my favorite.

Do you have any hobbies? 
I like to ride horses.

What is currently in the cd player of your vehicle? 
Seether.  Seether? What’s that?  It’s a rock band.

If you could move anywhere else in the world, where would it be and why?  Probably Wyoming because I like the country and there’s like nothing out there — like no big cities or anything like that.  (I’ve heard that you haven’t really seen the stars until you’ve looked up at a Wyoming sky on a moonless night.)

 Have you ever been to Idaho?  No.  I’ve heard that’s awesome too.  Yah me too.

Describe your ideal day – what would you do – where would the road take you?  I’d go to a tractor pull.  A tractor pull?  Yep.  (I like asking that question because you never get the same answer twice.)

Lightning Round:

Gaga or Taylor Swift?  Taylor Swift.

Transformers or Twilight?  Twilight.

Taco Johns or Taco Bell?  Taco Bell.

Glass: half empty, half full, or someone just left it sitting there and no one felt like washing it today?  Half full.

Target or Walmart?  Target.

Ebay or Amazon?  Amazon.

Win the lottery or become President?  (grinning with confidence)  Win the lottery.


We’d like to thank Bridget for taking time out of her schedule to sit down and chat with us.  She’s a very personable young lady and now she has a sweet new 4wd ride that you just may see her in as she zooms over the hills and valleys of the tri-state area. Let’s just hope she never feels the need to drive her new vehicle like Kathy Bates in Fried Green Tomatoes.
