The last one — on Nov. 17, 2010 — was the best one for them. Winfrey gave a new car to all those in attendance at the taping show, her final “my favorite things” taping.

Thursday was pick-up day nationwide, and Dozier and Blake squealed like schoolgirls when they saw their shiny silver sports cars — much like they did when Oprah announced the gift last November.

Up until Thursday, Blake drove a 1999 Nissan Sentra. Dozier plodded along in a decade-old Hyundai.
