Ok, I am truly heartbroken! Apparently the SC qualifies for Cash for Clunkers After all!

I just drove by a dealership with a beautiful SC, rebuilt engine and trans, new paint, aftermarket exhaust, etc. Sounds awesome and runs great! Heading out for the clunkers program to be destroyed!!! :eek:

I felt sick to see such a beautiful car that's going to have it's engine and transmission destroyed! I am going to try to follow it through the salvage yard and see if there is anything I can do to retrieve some of the parts, or pick up the remaining car outright!

wow, i know if i was going to do that . I would trade up with some who had a SC in terrible shape, because they have to scape them. I asked a local junk yard here, and they said it would defeat the governments purpose to part them out as they want better fuel economy vehicles on the road .... SUCKS I KNOW.

Make sure you guys check with the salvage yards. From what I read, the approved yards that receive them have 180 days before they have to crush them, and certain parts can be removed for resale. The engines and transmissions need to be disabled immediately though.

The entire "U.S. taxdollars for ricers" program is just one of the many current assaults on the American economy. Maybe in time real Americans will drag the puke's out of the pink/green cars and use them as a $4,500 punching bag.

SC's with automatic transmissions qualified for the bogus program. SC's with 5-speeds did not.

well if any one reads this thread who is considering cash for clunkers , and has a nice bird you should post it for a trade to someone who has a clunker. that way you know that nice SC wont be scraped. with out a doubt in my mind i would because ether way your not losing any money your getting 4500. unless newly transferred titles don't qualify.

New titles don't qualify. They have to be in your name for a year.

Just saw a 'bird in the parts yard yesterday what was a C4C.

It had a tag on the engine and the top of the motor was painted fluorescent green. Sign inside says heads and block can't be sold off of them.
