    I won a $30k vehicle once (I sold it back) and while the taxes were disappointing (about 20%) I was able to get on a payment plan with the IRS (I had to use all money immediately due to life getting in the way) ... free anything is great! Congrats, you will definitely be driving a unique and very cute vehicle!

    Congratulations! I agree that they surely made it known that whoever won would be paying the taxes but that sure wouldn't stop me (or most people, I'm sure). I'd probably sell my present car to pay the taxes on the new one!! Good for you!

    Congratulations!!! That is soooo amazing. I won a basket full of fabrics and quilting notions at the last Long Island Shop Hop and I was on top of the world. If I won the car I would be in the stratosphere. Enjoy it, drive it, have fun with it! If you start thinking about taxes remember Scarlet O'Hara from Gone With the Wind and her famous saying:"I'll think about it tomorrow".
    I've got a smile on my face, I've got four walls around me
    The sun in the sky, the water surrounds me
    I'll win now but sometimes I'll lose
    I've been battered, but I'll never bruise

    WOW ... that is just great!!! I would have LOVED to go to this quilt show (about 130 mi. away from me) .... but, last week, I was car shopping!!! Ruined my car by going thru some water in the road and had to *find* a different car rather quickly.

    How neat it is, you won a new car .... enjoy the ride
