If you won the $500Mil Powerball, would you give away your 3 for free?

I've been in the mood for making lame topics to keep my attention at work. So if you were the sole winner of the Powerball tonight, would you even try selling your 3?

I figure I'd find some person in need who was a hard worker and down on his/her luck and give them the car. They can then do what they choose with it, sell or keep it.

I'd keep it. Just because I won a crap ton of money doesn't make the money I spent on my car any less valuable. Don't get me wrong, I'd buy more cars, but I wouldn't get rid of my 3 unless it was giving me problems.

I would give mine to my good friend who has a POS Pontiac Azteck.

And i would buy my best friend a ferrari 599 California

This is the reason why people who win lotteries end up miserably.

Part of me would want to keep it for sentimental purposes but on the other hand, I'm a generous person so I would probably give it to a good friend of mine.

i'd mod the car the way i can only dream right now. it would be fun as hell. I live in canada so i'd probably drive down to a few shops in the USA spending time in hotels that rent rooms for more a night than I currently pay for rent/month. Get some work done then its off to the next shop. I'm sure id have a lot of fun with a wallet that size. Widebody,RBs,oil slick/smoke screen buttons etc etc

Nope, keep it as my dd. Mod the hell out of it though. Then purchase myself a mtv cribs style home, with an additional warehouse for cars. And then follow my dreams and start a race team.

I have a lot of sentimental value with my car since I got it when I went into management. So no I will not give it away.

500M is a huge amount of money. Enough to drop a v12 turbocharged lamborghini gallardo motor into the 3 just because you can.

I would tell absolutely no one... in fact, the money would go to a trust that I would create.

I'm not saying to be fiscally retarded just thought it woulnd't be a bad gesture.

There is a big difference between winning the lotto for 5 million vs. 500 million, you can afford to be a little dumb.
