Cash For Clunkers sales report details - trucks take a big hit

Interesting statistics. To me the most surprising is that we allowed the Cash For Clunkers to include the purchase of foreign vehicle makes. I think it would have been better if it was limited to Made in America. Of course, many foreign corporations now manufacture on U.S. soil, so mixed bag I guess. Interesting that Michigan is the largest dollar amount, especially with the highest unemployment as well.

  1. As I commented on Facebook, perhaps this will help some of the out-of-work employees, even of those foreign companies here in the U.S.

  2. That is true... I think if it was to stimulate us into buying and and stimulate our economy - why not just US cars. Odd.

    be well...

  3. Hi Ken,
    Absolutely ... I had no idea that the Cash for Clunkers also applied to foreign vehicles. It's the U.S. companies who need a boost ... let's focus our energies there!
    Best,
    Marty

  4. It is not limited to just American cars because all the car dealerships selling foriegn cars are also employing American citizens. Besides, those people who want to buy, you know, good cars, will be buying Hondas or Toyotas.
