    Too bad he'll have to pay massive a amount of tax to keep both cars. IIRC, you need to claim the value of the vehicles as income and he'll probably lose 1/2 the value of those cars to taxes... :( kinda feel bad for him, it would be a shame to have to sell one or both just to pay the taxes you know?

    Kinda sad to split up a pair of sweet cars that were designed to be given away together though, no?

    word up... I'd probably sell both to a collector for way more than sticker, pay off the taxes, and go buy myself a brand new Boss AND an old Boss... Like a Boss mother f**ker :nice:

    I don't think I'd cuss or throw a fit about having to pay just the taxes either. Hmmmm.... pay full price or......
