I thought the Cash for Clunkers was a huge joke until today. Went to the local wrecking yard looking for Dodge parts. They had just crushed all their old stuff and the truck I was looking for unfortunately was one of the "crushees". HOWEVER............ They had just replaced the old stuff with a large selection of "Clunkers" and one was a pretty decent Dodge 4WD with the tailgate and mirrors I needed. The tailgate was even the same color as my truck. I also wanted a factory 4 Bbl. air cleaner instead of the chrome open element for cold weather and as luck would have it this was a 318 4 Bbl. Even better, when I pulled the air cleaner I found a brand new QuadraJet with electric choke and Chrysler throttle arm underneath and I mean BRAND NEW!!! Got it for $45. The sad part was that this "clunker" was 20 times nicer than mine and a 4WD to boot. Most of the clunkers there were in pretty nice shape.......
