    Not one friggin red cent---this has been the biggest cluster I've ever been part of in my 20+ years doing this. I talk with alot of dealers and nobody is getting paid, PERIOD. Gets better. There's a dealer "hot line" you can call for help where after 62 minutes (really) of being on hold someone takes your name, dealership your with and email and tells you someone will call you back---"where just a call center" was the common reply.

    This will be a great program once we get paid but right now it's chewing up cash flow at a high rate of speed.

    If I assume that you guys will eventually get paid, Camp, would you say that the "Cash For Clunkers" program brought people into the showroom that otherwise would not have been there making purchases? Is it possible for you to estimate how much, if any, of an increase in sales resulted from the program?

    By the way-how are your dogs doing?

    I was floored when I recently read that you could qualify for this program by only increasing your MPG by 3 MPG. So you could upgrade from a 15 MPG to an 18 MPG vehicle and got into the program. Seems kinda crazy to replace an old clunker with a new clunker. The extension of this program seemed to be rammed through.

    Camp... why are they making dealers foot the bill and get a rebate instead of rebating tax payers on their annual income tax? I guess it was thought that people would be more reluctant to sign if the money was on the back end instead of the front end? Buyers would get a slightly lower payment too, I guess. Sucks you guys have to deal with this in the red waiting for the gov to get its act together.

    Not to get political wait and see what happens if the healthcare passes. Personally, I think that the manufacturers should be dealing with the payment issues, not the dealers. I am glad that it is ebding, stop the handouts.
