My live in boyfriend bought me a car. We have broken up and he wants the car back. He paid for it - and gifted it to me and it was titled and registered in my name from day one. Does he get the car?

Not unless the car was given to you as a conditional gift, with the condition being that you had to remain boyfriend/girlfriend.

It is a gift. It does not matter if it was a pair of socks or a car. You do not have to return it unless it was condition on something. My sense is that he will not go through the trouble of trying to get it back.
