yup, s'called 'Cash for Clunkers'Apparently there is now some 3 or 4 thousand dollar tax payer bailout/credit/bullshit to car buyers who trade-in their older low gas mileage cars if the old cars are CRUSHED.
There are seriously poor people that can't even think about buying a new car that might need an inexpensive, old, used car that will get them around for a while.
basically, they'd allow me up to $4500 for my well used gas hoggin stuff totin toy haulin '94 460 V8 F-250....almost exactly what the truck would bring for a private sale. of course, I'd have to trade it in on a much more expensiver new vee-hickle. (a minor detail conveniently left out of the program PR)
I'd much rather see the truck go to a new home and new ppl who'd employ it to haul ponies or sheet rock or firewood, than turn it in to the Feds and have a good hard working hard drinkin ford tooken off'n the road, crushed and made into effin' Chevy Volts or some such nonsense.
