You guys read the compilation of cars that were scrapped by the government's cash for clunkers? I was amazed at peoples opinion on the value of their fully insured and running cars registered for the last year as the most they would get would be about $2,500 in trade for a car ($4,500 if you traded in an old truck).

Included in the mad dash to buy Hondas and Toyotas was a 1997 Rolls Royce which cost a little over $300,000 when new. A 500 horse power four turbo Mercedes Benz sport coupe; and 131 Corvettes, including 47 convertibles: one 1987 Buick GNX turbo powered V-6 black with black interior. And a couple of $150,000 BMW's with a single Austin Martin DB-7 valued at $125,000 (probably because the spy who owned it retired and wants a luxurious Hyundai). I never knew Americans wanted to buy Jap junk that badly that they would take that uch of a loss on their cars.

Oh yeah 10% of all vehicles were Ford explorers with SUV's by Ford making up more than 60% of the total number of cars scarpped
