They’ll get my ‘98 Wrangler when they pry my cold, dead hands from the steering wheel.
Thanks to Cash for Clunkers, I now resolve to keep the old beast running as long as it is feasibly possible to do so.
Oh, and another thing...I’m going to get larger tires and run them at 18 PSI, and keep it in third gear all the time, so she’ll drop three or four MPG. Just because I can.
And for my next car, I will intentionally select something used that could fit within the Cash For Clunkers criteria. And again, I will drive it as many years as possible, with low tires, at varying speeds, intentionally choosing routes with a lot of stop-and-go driving.
Take that, Obama.
Some people learn from history in order not to repeat a mistake and others learn what works and repeat it.
