Cash for clunkers WJ

Might be a re-post. If it is sorry. There is quite a few videos on there , this jeep just looked like a shame to be scrapping like that and Im surprised it lasted liek that with no oil in it.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjBilHH5z2A

Damn, and that one looked clean, no smoke....

Destroying functioning equipment should be a sin.

Supposedly, the object is to remove older fuel thirsty and polluting cars from the road to help reduce oil dependency and the environment.

Yet I see no catch pans for the fluids or even any clean up, just antifreeze and oil headed for the sewer.

<EDIT>

I suggest a boycott of any dealer that participated in this program.

you will cry when you see what one of my moms friends are taking into cash for clunkers tomorrow morning at 8 am. I tried to snatch it from the jaws of death but they already signed it away to the dealer.

let the tears pour.
