    My older daughter got me a wonderful gift for my birthday -- a Ferrari 250 GTO!

    Ok...it's a Hotwheels...my daughter is 8.

    My wife said my two daughters really wanted to get me cars for my birthday. They walked over to the Hotwheels wall at the Target store and picked out the ones they liked. My older daughter picked the GTO (and she said she didn't even bother to read that it was a Ferrari...she just thought it looked pretty -- like a car I would really love.)

    My five-year-old picked a '65 Chevy Impala SS, which is totally funny, because that's what my father in law has (although his is a convertible and the last time she saw the Impala she was less than a year old.) Again, she just liked the way it looked.

    I have the two cars sitting behind me on the bookshelf (still in the packages) in my home office.

    It just makes me smile that they gave me such perfect gifts. Now all I need is a 1:64 version of me to drive them!

    I did the same for my dad when I was growing up. He died before I could reasonably afford to buy him the real thing.....

    Avishar, my 5 year old is already laying claim to both the Corvette and the Ferrari. Little does she know that the insurance won't cover her (or her sister) until she's 25. They'll get a nice big 10+ year old Toyota Avalon for high school.
