Regular people are starting to chime in about the ‘runaway’ success of the Cash for Clunkers program.
Collecting money from the taxpayer to distribute to car buyers should be expanded to all areas of our daily lives. How about $325 bucks to anyone turning in their gas or electric powered lawnmower if they purchase three goats. How about $1700 towards the purchase of a 14 foot rowboat with oars if you turn in a twin engine Sea Ray. How about $400 bucks towards a deluxe roof mounted Windmill for your home if you discontinue your electric service. How about $2,100 towards a stand alone restroom behind your home if you turn in your toilet. Gee! , we could save all kinds of money! I sure am glad that we have Obama and the democrats in there with all of there great ideas. I am so proud that I just want to donate, donate donate!
I am not sure I agree with this guy but it did make me chuckle!!!

Has this plan been so succesful it has to be put on hold already, well the Wall Street Journal is reporting just that!!
The U.S. government plans to temporarily suspend its “cash for clunkers” incentive program because Obama administration officials believe its $1 billion budget has been exhausted after just one week, said several congressional officials.
Department of Transportation officials contacted lawmakers offices Thursday evening to inform them the program would be put on hold as early as Friday, these people said.
The program, which offers rebates of up to $4,500 to consumers who trade in old vehicles and buy new, more fuel-efficient models, was launched July 24 and sparked a surge in car sales.
There is probably a hundred thousand cars still in limbo looking for disposal and I guess we can expect another 4 or 5 billion to be set aside for a more substantial run at this program because of its runaway success. It should leave us all in a great position to profit from the next wave!

I absolutely love the new cool graphic they are using to count down the funds remaining in the cash for clunkers program aka: CARS (Car Allowance Rebate System). Personally I think the money will be drained by September 29th, 2009 – so everyone of you should really get your ‘dealer kit’ fully prepared and hit the pavement trying to grab some of these available cars for recycling.
If you have any questions about how to customize the kit for your own use make sure to call Carmen at 1-800-668-5014 x 260

My purpose overall is to drive more value to all our affiliates throughout North America via online promotions, marketing and search engine optimization. The more visible our program and your websites are the more cars and general business we will all get as a direct result of these efforts. Most recently I secured a year-long banner placement for GreenVehicleDisposal.com on a good, relevant site – please drop-in and have a look.

It seems a few customers are having difficulty understanding exactly how the rules of the CARS program play out when purchasing a new car. Here is the verbage from the CARS FAQ’s
In addition to this credit, will I get the full value of my trade-in vehicle?
No. The law requires your trade-in vehicle to be destroyed. Therefore, the value you negotiate with the dealer for your trade-in vehicle is not likely to exceed its scrap value. The law requires the dealer to disclose to you an estimate of the scrap value of your trade-in vehicle.
But the deal still works out well because the total discount is much better than if they just got a higher trade-in price.

After the webinar yesterday we sure had a lot to talk about and after hours of doing just that we are in the proccess of putting together a very ‘awesome’ looking ‘kit’ for our affiliates to take around to local dealers so they can get hold of some of the vehicles brought in through the ‘cash for clunkers program’.
One of the burning questions we had was what would happen to the salvage price over the $50 the dealers are able to take as an administration fee? It seems anything quoted (one of the rules of the program is that all dealers have to give the customer an estimate of the salvage value of their vehicle) above and beyond the $50 is taken off the price of the vehicle to the customers advantage.
I am getting ready to start a pool on how long the initial funds of $875,000,000 will last, want in?
