This whole story makes me ill. The thought of giving a $50,000 car as a present to a friend blows my mind. Oh, well… maybe this is the Scrooge coming out in me. Big bow companies (yes, places that make bows to put on cars) are seeing sales quadruple this year. Could be all those pretentious Lexus commercials giving seventeen-year-olds IS300s. Bah-humbug.
