Toni Pearen loves the convertible lifestyle. The 35-year-old host of Australia's Funniest Home Videos, who recently married Sydney bar owner Will Osmond, is a fresh-air fan who has been won over by the Volkswagen Eos.
What was your first car?
A white Honda Accord
What do you drive now?
A blue VW Eos
Do you have a favourite drive and who would you take?
I love road trips. They give me a sense of freedom. I love driving along the Great Ocean Rd. I've done it once and the only thing I took was my guitar, but in the future I'd definitely take my husband.
How far would you drive in an average year?
Do you have a favourite motoring memory?
About six years ago, I travelled the country for six months with a play called Stories from Suburban Road by Tom Hungerford. Every day, five amazing actors and myself would jump in a van and travel to another far-off destination to perform. We performed in Alice Springs and Darwin. We travelled the WA coastline and inland to Kalgoorlie. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
What would you buy if money was no object?
What music is playing in your car?
Right now I'm loving Katie Noonan's new album, Skin, Brandi Carlisle and Feist.
How much is too much for a new car?
When you live in your car instead of your house!
What should be done to make driving safer?
Better education of young drivers.
Are you sponsored by a car company?
Yes. I'm a VW ambassador.
