Do I give my second car to a grandchild?

I have two grandkids. Both are 17. Neither has a car. One is a grandson and one is a grandduaghter. I am certainly not able or willing to buy them a car. I have a 8 year old Mercury Sable in top-notch condition. My granddaughter has hinted that since I don't need a second car that I should give it to her. I usually ignore hints of any kind. My concern is that if I give this car to her then the grandson will feel left-out. Actually he is more deserving but that is another story. I can only conclude that I do not give either of them that car since I can't give them both a car. What are your opinions about this little problem? I suppose I could sell it and split the small proceeds but it would not amount to a lot of money for either.
