The DB7 points to that.
Someone stores it, flood, no insurance.
Someone crashes it, no or invalid insurance.
When we travel to America we are always floored at how many cars that are only a couple years old are just RAGGED. Dents on every panel, rusting, smoky. Some Americans are hard on cars or people just drive 'em into the ground sometimes. With rims. Lol.

Most people that don't buy new cars/trucks don't buy because the cost of the payments, gas, repairs and insurance. So now the government destroys all these affordable cars and trucks. So what does that do for the economy because without these affordable cars and trucks. People that could have bought them can't, and It's not likely they will be able to step up to buy a new vehicle either because of how bad the economy is.
What about the people that traded cars and trucks in on this program? If they finance to buy them now they are suck in debt so they have less money to spend in the economy on other things.
This is what people should understand about debt. Debt is based on a french word and it's meaning is death pledge. Like as in the death of the economy. So is the point of this program to put the last nail in the coffin of the economy?
I just wonder how many decades it will be before our economy starts to recover?
What really gets me is that if the American auto industry is dead. Why don't the car manufactures cut prices on the vehicles they are selling to increase sales? Is it greed?
