If you ask me, this program was a joke.
First off, in Las Vegas, almost all the dealerships had problems getting their reimbursements from the gov't (surprising, I know)
The program was also designed to give GM, Ford and Chrystler a boost, but we all know that it was the Asian car companies that got the boost.
I also read the other day that the carbon footprint of destroying all those cars is much bigger than the footprint of leaving those cars on the road for 5 more years!
What a waste of taxpayer money!
And what about those used car dealerships who thrive off those "clunkers"? Now they have no inventory.
And what about those lower middle class families who are looking for a cheap car to buy their son/daughter for college?
