"'Longer in stride, wider in stance and cat-sure on standard, steel-belted radials," she says. "The other one was, 'Jeep wrote the book on 4-wheel drive.' I probably said that about 18,000 times."
Sometimes her speeches would last for 10 minutes. She didn't have much time to prepare, but she had her whole routine down.
