Buying a car for someone else, how to do it?
In the next few years, I'm planning to buy a car for my dad who lives in California and I'm in Illinois. I'd like to surprise him with it in the driveway. How do I go about registration and insurance? Will a dealership register a car under him if he is not at the dealership with me? Do I cover the car with my insurance until I give it to him? I plan to drive it from the dealership straight to his house.
FYI, I'm thinking about a Mercedes SL 550.
