Clunker Frenzy......








Hi Everybody...
What a week! After putting in 67 hours this week, I'm just gonna kick back today. You wanna know what kind of deals are bringing people in the store in DROVES?
See that top pic? Thats an HHR. It has a 4 cylinder engine thats very peppy, has loads of cargo space, seats 5, is very well equipped, and has a sticker price of 23,000 Bucks. One of my old college professors Tom Coffey, travelled almost 250 from Michigan's U.P. to see me for this deal.
With his GM Family discount, and all of the GM incentives...The Cash For Clunkers 4500.00 Govt. rebate put this sporty little ride at an even 12,000 bucks difference!
See the last 4 pics? Thats about a 200 Dolla ride that he got 4500 bucks for!
Is it any wonder that the Feds pissed though 950 MILLION bucks in 6 days?
I'm resting here today...I figure 3 more days of long hours...Then come Thursday I'm GONE!!!! This time for real!
I'm making Beer Butt Pesto Chicken today, with Crab Filled Pepper Poppers.
I may show how they turned out tomorrow...
Peace...!!!

Enjoy your day, you deserve it.

I heard a nasty rumor that they are adding more money to extend the deals... leave while you can!!

Relax while you can.

Some will benefit from this latest deal, most will not.

I feel for the people who have to clean out the clunkers. Can you say HazMat suit boys and girls? Enjoy your time off - it is well deserved.

Lou said...

Is it true the dealer has to junk the old cars? Why can't they go to people who NEED them, or would be glad to get a car.
Grrrr..tell me it ain't so, G.

Serena said...

Wow, 67 hours of Clunker Frenzy. I don't blame you; I'd kick back and give myself a day off, too.

KB said...

You deserve a rest for sure. I wanna see the food pics please.

Breazy said...

everyone is going crazy over the cash for clunkers around here as well. Hope you get some really good rest before returning to work.

Have a good one!

Seems like every government deal passe me by, but not the tax bill for it! I've never owned a POS auto, and bought a new mini-van 2yrs. ago... not my turn- again..

Jessie said...

I hope you enjoy the day, and really kick back for a week once Thurs. rolls around.

Dinner sounds good -- I'll be over shortly...
