    Well, I didn't win the lottery, sure didn't have much money... heck, didn't even have a job a the time - but I bought my Mom a brand new Geo Metro many years back. She still drives it.

    Probably wouldn't get her anything much fancier if I won the lottery - just something dependable that got good mileage.

    I'm just doing this to help out the thread, never really thought about this as I don't think I'll ever win the powerball:

    Wife: Lambo Gallardo spider
    Dad: AM Vantage DBS
    Mom: Something simple, maybe a new Hyundai or something like that. She doesn't like "fancy" cars
    Brother 1: Old hot rod, like a 69 chevelle or something. He'll probably pawn it so I wouldn't worry about it being nice
    Brother 2: WRX STI
    Sister: Not sure really, maybe a M3 or S5, something along those lines
    Mother in Law: New Cherokee
    Father in Law: Nothing, he's got his own money

    Myself: Well....wanna book? I'd start with a CS factory stripe, Enzo and a Wrangler fitted for serious offroading :)

    Dad: 1967 RS Camaro - his first new car that was stolen 3 weeks after he bought it.
    GF: Restored 240Z, her first car, she still talks about it.
    Mom: Probably nothing, she doesn't drive much.

    My dad ...88 years young and doesn't drive or own a car, so: Lincoln MKZ (with a driver)
    My wife: Land Rover LR2
    My ex-wife: lifetime public transit pass
    My mistress: Lexus GS350 AWD
    My older brother: Volvo XC70
    My older sister (in keeping with her frugal and miserly lifestyle): Toyota Camry
    My oldest sister: NOTHING!! ...since odds are, her lazy unemployed oaf of a deadbeat WASP husband will probably trade whatever I give her for a case of beer, a lid of grass and some nudie magazines. And if they do keep it...it will wind up in their back yard, on blocks, within 18 months.

    You should give me a try! On another note, I know one that hit the power ball. It was 56 or 65 million. The only car bought for someone else was for their mother. She took it & got a loan on it the next day.
