Today my daughter turned 16. Of course she wanted a car. She doesn't have her license yet so that would be a waste of money for now. It will have to happen someday though.  I asked her tonight what she wanted for her birthday. She answered predictably "a car." Uncharacteristically I said "OK." Of course, she didn't specify so this is what she got. One of the oldest tricks in the book, but she took it well.
