    I work with people who drive 10-20 year old cars sometimes older.

    Why some may ask? Because that is all they can afford and it is more cost efficient to have no car payments and just pay a bit more for gasoline.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Thanks for sharing your obvious rant over nothing
    So, when reverend pronounces
    Mustang comma
    Camaro comma
    ford Falcons comma

    and my heart drops down at each comma

    it is melodramatic?

    So, when I look at 80’s Jaguar, living and breathing and running

    Just like a car you're pleasing to be hold
    I'll call you Jaguar if I may be so bold
    'Cos you're my baby, 'cos you're my love
    Oh girl I'm just a jeepster for your love – oh

    and I want her, do you reallly think I have to be charged/taxed/dictated by the government for my sexual desires?

    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 your car is over 25 years old, it doesn't qualify, so charities still have a chance.

    I drive a truck that is 32 years old. Some ask why. It's because I can fix it myself and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg to do it. I can replace the fuel pump in 30 minutes and spend 25 bucks. On an '09 your truck will be in the shop for a week and it'll cost 600 bucks. If I'm careful and keep my foot out of it, I can even get 18 mpg on the highway. It ain't rocket science.

    I think Global warming is a bigger danger to the human race than charities that may or may not be inadvertently be hurt by a decrease in the donations of polluting cars.

    And i am sure that there will always be at least one surviving car of the many different vehicles produced, since you are so worried about the devastation that the disappearance of these cars would have on western culture.

    You save the cars and the history, the rest of us will work on a way to save us from ourselves... of course isn't that what Cash for Clunkers is trying to do?
