    I don't see why he wouldn't be able to. Thought he might need a license in order to register it.

    A 3 year old kid can buy a car if he has the money, he just can't drive it.

    you can buy it, just not register or insure it.

    Yes. You need a license to drive a car, not to own one.

    Doesn't Lil Bow wow or Little Romeo own their own cars? I remember somebody posting it a while ago.
