Catalogue Offers Million Dollar Gift Ideas

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you’ve got millions to spend, but no idea what to buy your loved ones this holiday season, the publisher of a fine automobile catalogue has a few ideas.

Tom duPont, who has published the duPont Registry: A Buyer’s 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 we’re 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 he’d like to have the Patek watch, but says, “That one at $1.2 million is probably out of my range.”
