    Where is the $4,500 coming from??

    Oh yeah, taxes, it's just more wealth redistribution.

    I heard from a very prominent dealer today. He's in this program but is skeptical of it doing much good. One thing he did mention is that the instructions for this reasonably simpe program are in a 136 page book! Imagine what healthcare will require.

    The dealers around here are slammed busy and had huge weekend sales. Between the a local Ford and Chevy store the did close to 100 deals in two days. What they are concerned with is getting the cash from the gooberment because they are letting the cars roll based on meeting all the criteria.

    Yes, the paperwork is lenghty because of all the documentation for the trade-in vehicles they have to perminently immobilize. The VIN numbers have to be verified, 1 years proof of insurance, current drivers license etc.

    As others have mention, I'd rather see our tax dollars go for this then wasted on bureacratic bs which the Obama administration has an ample supply of.

    Or Haliburton execs in the form of non-competitive bids. Or AIG execs in their Hawiian summer homes.

    Sorry I like my clunkers! I have come to like the oil stains in the driveway, adding oil every couple days, and the awful gas mileage. They can have em over my dead body!
