    As for me, I am also concerned that this program is going to crush many classics and potential classic cars and we may lose a piece of our history in the name of fake stimulous.
    I'm not a big fan of charities anymore when they hire lawyers that bill 660 $ per hour. Whatever happened to probono work?

    Thanks for sharing your obvious rant over nothing


    As for losing classics. This has been contention of many car clubs LONG before Obama.....


    That said. You still are not commenting on the topic and instead trolling and baiting. I suggest you start showing you have self control...

    The Salesmanship Club in Dallas who also put on the Byron Nelson. Left a bitter taste in my mouth recently. Also the Dallas Can Academy has as well and they do do the car thing.

    Your statement is just as melodramatic.
    You have to admit that there is incentive being given to do so. Not that i think it matters much on the grand scheme of charity, but that is based solely on the fact that charities were going to be hurt regardless of this program, due to greater need, and shrinking contributions (due to unemployment and asset value drops).

    Rev, that is an unintended consequence. I wonder if this new program automatically scraps them, or tries to sell them first, and then scrap them. It would make much more sense to attempt to up their marginal return.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Caught this a bit ago and thought it might be worth mentioning.


    USNews

    7. The economic incentive of the bill is to jump-start drowsy auto sales. According to Bloomberg, similar programs worldwide have raised auto sales 25 percent to 40 percent in Germany, 15 percent in China and 8 percent in France.

    I am 100% sure, they are scrapping them in the name of the environment... It would be quite the scandal if they did not.
