the original sales price of the car, or what you paid for it?

what i paid for it.

it would be possible to make a quick transaction for a ridiculously low price 
(with a friend) to get around that one.  

yeah - you can always do that, but only if there's a cash transaction and
everyone is "cool" about it.  we financed ours, so it had to be all out in the
open, and we paid the whole tariff as a result.

well, i gotta go now - i get all clenched up every time i think about it...i'm
not a libertarian or anything, but i think each means of taxation should at
least **appear** reasonable.
