Tom duPont, who has published the duPont Registry: A Buyers Gallery of Fine Automobiles since 1985, has just released a special double holiday issue featuring ten rare and precious gift ideas from a $1.2 million Patek Phillipe watch to a Ferrari bicycle in addition to the usual fine cars.
duPont says, Detractors say were nothing but a full-color Auto Trader but one must ask, would the Auto Trader ever feature a 9.19-carat round, brilliant diamond for $129,700?
The publisher says his favorite featured item is a one-of-a- kind Ford Tiki Truck, with an exotic Polynesian motif, hot tub and bamboo-front grill, but says the $85,000 item will probably go to some guy with a beachfront home in Maui.
He also admits hed like to have the Patek watch, but says, That one at $1.2 million is probably out of my range.
