If you're going to avail yourself of the program, I'd do it quick.

nope! there are more entitlements of that sort coming.

theclencher 07-31-2009 01:47 PM

jones, now's your chance to crush that pile

bowtieguy 07-31-2009 02:00 PM

NO WAIT! don't crush 'em, sell them to china and india instead.

Screw that! I actually like driving this thing! The Tracker, however, would have been gone on the first day of the program.

Then again, alot of vehicles out there get the 22+ MPG I'd need for 4500 and definitely the 16+ needed for 3500.

It's really "credit towards an efficient or vaguely efficient new car, for guzzlers and vaguely inefficient vehicles regardless of whether or not they clunk".

I've seen a lot of new cars with September 01 dealer plates stuck on them. But, as the story says, the real guzzlers that they were supposed to be taking off the road are still in service. Like mine.

Yet people still feel that social healthcare won't fail here.

theclencher 08-02-2009 08:01 PM

Why must every mfer on earth talk about health care when the clunkers program comes up?

Yes the clunker program is crap; it's pretty half-baked. The health care thing has been debated to death for decades. The stakes are much much higher. Hopefully they'll get that more right.

Dad called me yesterday, told me if I was gonna take advantage of that program to take Rusty on in before the funding ran out. The truth is this though. Rusty only goes maybe 200 miles a year. Dad just uses it to go back & forth to the hardware store and the dump as needed. IF I turned Rusty in to get my $4,500 voucher, this is what would happen. I'd turn in Rusty (Only goes 200 miles/yr). I'd leave The Beast at Dad's for hardware store trips, and I'd drive a new truck. The vehicle turned in hardly went anywhere to begin with.
