    :headscratch: Just read the FEDS will call off the CASH FOR CLUNKER program at midnight tonight. 23,000 trade ins and already handed out 96 million.

    There goes my new diesel truck.. Not surprised though. Clunkers for guns sounds good to me.

    Hmmmm.....I honestly have no idea how much .gov has left in the program but the official .gov clunkers website is saying $779mil still left in the program out of 1 billion.

    It looks like they update the webpage on an hourly basis. Doesn't necessarily mean the webpage people are on the same wavelength as the shot-callers though. The online figure could be only cash already paid out to the dealers, not pending trade-ins sitting on the lot.

    I don't think the program lasted a week.

    :headscratch: With this administrations dislike for guns (that's an understatement).....it's surprising they hadn't come up with trading guns in on cars!! I have a couple I'd take $4500.00 for...........they are ammo guzzlers!:lolz:

    Story is (from the new car dealers I deal with daily) that they can't get any straight answers from the government on whether they will get paid for the trades they have already done or not because the poorly managed "program" has no clue what it is doing. Although the program has been up and running for days, nobody knows any details.

    ...and these are the same fine folks that are going to "FIX" health care.

    Bend over boys.
