In The New York Times today, Dawn Staley, professional basketball player for the Charlotte Sting and women's basketball coach at Temple University, describes her current ride, a Mercedes CL500. Shopping for the car was an intense personal experience for her, as she says that during trips to the dealership to check out the large coupe, "It would call to me and I would answer." She also discusses how her upbringing in the projects of Philadelphia, where her father often repaired cars, influenced her driving decisions later in life.
