    Wish I had a clunker. Got rid of a VW last year, but that got like 30 mpg ...

    If we had the money for a new car I'd trade in my wife's shit box for that credit tomorrow!

    You mean like how GM now stands for "Government Motors?"

    I like the idea on a lot of levels. It's expensive and all, but the longer-run cost savings (both in fuel and the environment) are huge. Transportation is one of, if not the, largest energy use sectors, and improving the efficiency (and safety/reliability/etc) of the on road fleet is a good thing, I think.

    It's lame. It's a government sponsored way to get new cars off the lot. I think the government has f'd with the free market/domestic makers hard enough since January; leave well enough alone. I'll have read the actual bill. But as it was proposed, you theoretically could go out and use the money to buy a newer pickup. The devil is in the details.

    To me, this makes about as much sense as tearing down your house to built one that's more energy efficient. "Look! I'm going to save $500 a year on my utilities! Let's ignore the fact that I just used half a forest worth of trees and litteraly tons of other raw materials...I'm saving the planet!!!!1111"
