3)Mercury (Ford) so, We bail out OUR Domestic car companies and give out
$4500 per vehicle to the TOYOTA dealer of choice? Calif. has SMOG CHECK

have been for domestic vehicles only. And don't tell Me WE don't make ?

It's a sad day in the neighborhood when our government is telling you to change your life style ! It's nice that these trade in buyer's have a job to help support our car dealer's ! This program is not for me and many other's who cannot afford a car payment. I don't consider my vehicle a clunker, I'm proud to be an owner of a "CLUNKER" and I believe there's pleanty of us around !
