I saw almost all Jeep Cherokee/Grand Cherokees being hauled on the highway. Of the rest, the majority were other Chrysler products. Makes sense as they're clunkers from new.

The junk yards here are full, too. The parts are recyclable, except the engine, of course. Sucks, though for some of the decent cars that still had a serviceable life to them. I don't know why they couldn't have had some sort of evaluation part of the bill where the still-decent cars could be donated to woman's shelters or something similar.

I don't think this had anything to do with emissions or oil dependency—it was just a convoluted bailout for the dealers and a further help to the car makers (this time, foreign and domestic, whatever that means anymore).
