Cash for Clunkers – The Down Side

If you are reading this then you might like cars, old cars, muscle cars and even VW’s.

I’ve read some of the articles and I even watched them kill a Corvette, with that “gunk” they poored in the engine.  It took a long time for it to die.  Excuse me….I need a minute. OK, I’ll be  fine.  But maybe you won’t after you read this list of cars that got crushed.  I clipped this out a magazine Hot Rod Magazine ( I think).  Another fine periodical worth having.

I’ll give you a minute to go grab a tissue……………..waiting……………..waiting………..waiting.

Ok ready?  Read on if you dare:

1 Buick Grand National GNX (rare?….do ya think?)

1007 Chevy Camaros

131 Chevy Corvettes (Haters!!!!)

209 Chevy El Caminos (ok some of the later ones..maybe)

3842 Crown Victorias and LTD (big engines..gone)

24 Ford Lighting trucks

1611 Ford Mustangs (curse them!!!)

107 Ford Taurus SHOs (almost don’t care here)

3060 Ford Thunderbirds (sad)

sit down for this one

571 Pontiac Trans Ams and Firebirds (one was a 20th anniversary) (WHAT!!?!?!?!?! Son of…)

Approximately 690114 were destoryed.

Get this I have a distance relative, that had an old truck sitting in a field for years. Got it running and brought it in for an easy couple grand..yeah…your taxes at work.

Tomorrow we’ll get back to talking about mods and I’ll tell you my “issues” that I need to work through.

Thanks for reading.

    The rat-bastards. It seemed like a good idea at the time. I guess we live in a world of unintended consequences.

      Yes, I think you are correct. I don’t see to many VW’s on the list, they tend to be bigger polluters then than most of the cars on that list.

      Thanks for the comments.

Let me hear from you!!! Drop a note!!
