The “Clunker” Bill For Cars – Will This Destroy Many of the American Muscle Cars?
Future generations may not be able to able to shop for cars that are part of their youth like older people can. Most of us can purchase cars that we drove in as teenagers, which are the old classic muscle cars. There is a new bill that has pass the “clunkers” bill this is where the Government will give rebates if you turn in cars that do not get great gas mileage.
If you trade in a “clunker” for a newer car that gets better gas mileage you may qualify for that rebate.
What they consider a clunker is a gas-guzzler which is a vehicle that gets less than 18 MPG. This would cover many vehicles SUV’s, Trucks, and muscle cars. This could cover many of the classic vehicles and the vehicles that may be considered classic in a few years off the roads permanently.
Cars are part of our history. Cars have always held a soft spot in many of our heats and souls, what will happen to these vehicles that they consider clunkers? In order for this bill to pass, the dealers would have to crush them and get the clunkers off the roads. This bill is designed to replace the old model cars which they are hoping will be 1984 or later with the newer fuel efficient vehicles which will get better fuel mileage. This will take off the road many dependable vehicles that are not only classics but will be desirable in the future as vehicles that are sought after for collectors of automobiles.
