Her health insurance isn't covered yet. But if it is she'll need it because she either be jobless and on the dole ( not intentionally) or be part of the working poor with lower take home wages after less pay than her forebears. :)

What's that get for mpg?

I'm in the market for a new car for my wife. Her Bonneville has 180,000 miles on it so I'm starting to keep my eye open just to see what's out there.

I reckon I'll be ready to buy in 3 or 4 years.

Obviously neither of you has kids, that you're taking responsibility for at least.
That whole Ronald McDonald cartoon Happy Meal with a toy shit is targeted at a specific audience for a specific reason.
It's not like I enjoy having you toothless meth-heads handle my food. ;)

After Cash for Clunkers, higher prices

If you were one of the nearly 700,000 people who were able to cash in on the Cash for Clunkers program, congratulations, you probably got a good deal. On the other hand, if you bought a car without a clunker in the last month, you’ve overpaid.

Prices for cars during the Clunkers program went up for everyone. But buyers who used the program on average did about $3,000 better than those that did not. And if you absolutely have to buy a vehicle in the next two months, you’ll most likely pay more to get the same car.

It’s a simple matter of supply and demand. The wildly successful [/tongue 'n cheek] Cash for Clunkers program has thrown things out of whack. For the next couple of months, usually peak car buying season, inventories will be low and car shoppers should expect higher prices and fewer choices, experts say.

The only silver lining is with all the liquidity things are made more difficult to predict exact fallout as demand my remain low too. We'll see.

We don't pay taxes. That's for schleps who have payroll deductions. It's an automatic dumbass tax for people who are too stupid to do otherwise.

By then, 25% of these cars will have been repossessed. You'll be able to pick one up for a song once the market is flooded.

You think so? Why?

A dealer on another board insisted to me that the credit requirements were tight in order to qualify. So good credit was needed.

Give me a break. There are two kinds of people that made up the vast majority of these purchases.

1. The upper-middle class to upper class person with children of driving age. This person generally passes his car down to his oldest child when he gets a new car. The oldest child's car then gets passed down to the next oldest and so on. This guy bought a new car and traded in his oldest vehicle.

2. The person who was driving a clunker because that was what was affordable. You can have decent credit and not have enough money to buy a brand new car. Any time you get people trading cars worth $1,000 in for new cars, you can be certain that a high percentage of them made a big financial mistake.

Oh I'm giving you a break alright! See your point #2 here, that was my argument....that it was a Fannie-Freddie for cars and this dealer was all over me about that.

To be honest he knew all the credit requirements so I felt he knew more than me on it. So I was just wondering what you would use to say otherwise, since it was my original point.

I'll admit that I don't have any hard evidence that proves that many of those who purchased new vehicles were unworthy of credit. I don't think that being able to point out the likelihood of poor financial judgments on the part of lenders takes that much research.
