WMAL: Warren Brown Holly Reich on minivans


Washington Post’s journalist, Warren Brown, and the illustrious Holly Reich from New York City talk about minivans. How could a woman that lives in New York City like minivans?

Brown may not think minivans are great, but he thinks “Mom” Holly has some great insight into minivans for the Family Dream.

Lou Ann Hammond on Holly Reich:

Holly wrote like the woman she was, with a loving, quirky sense of humor. Feminine through and through, she loved to interview the designers and capture the dreams of the car they wanted to build. Holly wrote for such prestigious publications as Harper’s, New York Daily News, Hampton Magazine, Fortune, the Boston Herald, the Washington Post, the New York Daily News, and Redbook. She was also featured on several media outlets, including Lifetime TV, the Discovery Channel ABC Radio, and Fox News. She was recently recognized for her excellence in writing by the Texas Auto Writers Association.

“Holly was an integral part of the Women’s World Car of the Year (WWCOTY), and she reveled in meeting women from around the world who shared her passion for writing about cars from a style and design perspective. And she loved the women: When Turkey was being bombed, she made sure journalist Sevil was okay. She was always concerned about others, and they showed her love and admiration in return. It was Ylle Rajasaar from Estonia that said it best: ‘Each soul leaves a legacy of love that others would not have the courage to live and dream.”

“Holly fought cancer for twenty years, four times successfully. Each time I would ask her why she fought so hard, she would tell me ‘Because if I can help find a cure for cancer, my suffering will have been worth it.”

“Godspeed, girl. Oh, what the hell, go whatever speed you want. I will always miss you.”
