Angry cj 7 cash for clunkers

had some buddies go to the junkyard and they say this cj w/ cash for clunkers on it, turns out some other people saw the cj for sale and the guy wanted a ton of money for it. i hope he enjoys his ford focus.

that cj looks like it is in great shape. it is a shame that a vehicle that is considered to be vintage and classic gets the "clunkers" treatment . i could have probably used a ton of parts out of that damn thing .

i thought they couldnt re-sell the clunkers and that they had to be in running order when brought in for trade

this is correct, the engine gets disabled, and then it gets towed to the junk yard, and its up to the junk yard from there. they are allowed to sell parts off it, and the rest gets crushed, and with this influx of vehicles many are going right to the crusher. the vin number goes into a special category so it can't be put back on the road.

there were also rules about after a certain age they didn't qualify, this should not have qualified, it is a classic, an antique, something, not a clunker.

Don't blame the government for this one. Blame the dumbass that traded it in under the program.

Wonder what he got out of it?

That's what I got out of it! I would love to have a CJ, especially in that shape. All this does is make me sick.

The car has to be born after 1984 to qualify... so that ruled out much of the 'classics.' But it appears a few snuck through.
