For some people, a car is simply a Point-A-to-Point-B appliance devoid of sentimental value or excitement. Other people, however, are totally passionate about their wheels. If you fall into the latter group, Give A Masterpiece can create an eight-by-10-inch caricature of your car, truck, minivan, or what-have-you, drawn from your own photos. If you wish, the company will even include a personalized license plate as part of the rendering, at extra cost, and also handle framing and giftwrapping. Each “CarToon” is drawn on your choice of paper or on canvas. Prices begin at $70 plus shipping. Learn more about the process at
