The government’s “Cash for Clunkers” program generated much fuss, including a rumor that some of the relinquished cars turned in for credit were rare exotic and luxury cars.
The nature of the “Cash for Clunkers” program is to provide people with an incentive to become more “green”, by giving them a cash credit to turn in their older model gas guzzlers, which are then crushed. No one in his or her right mind would crush a rare exotic, right?
It would be shocking for anyone to actually crush an exotic collectors car. It seems that some of the models were incorrectly entered into the computer, as a Mercury Grand Marquis was entered as an Aston Martin. Like anyone is going to give their Aston Martin to “Cash for Clunkers” for a measly 5 grand. Owners of Astons do not need five grand, and take pride in their exotics. The story holds no validity.
Aston Martin owners hearing of this mix-up once it hit the rumor-mill must have been thoroughly amused. If you are not an owner, remember you can still indulge in an Aston Martin rental to feel the full-effect of the luxury car. Or maybe stop by the Cash for Clunkers lot and scan the contents for a great deal on an Aston (sorry, couldn’t stop myself).
