Pope Francis received the gift of a used vehicle on December 13, 2017.  But he was the one who put a few miles on this shiny Dodge.

The vehicle is the Popemobile the Holy Father used during his apostolic journey to Mexico, February 12-18, 2016.  It came to Rome as a gift from the Mexican people and marked the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Mexico and the Holy See.
