My wife just said we are getting clunked by the clunkers.

We are looking for a new car for my newly driving son (heaven help all drivers) so we will not be trading in any clunkers. Therefore, all of this temporary demand is keeping the dealers from giving me the really good deal we might otherwise expect from a hurting industry.

So, what happens when the money runs out – again? I think we will delay our purchase for a few weeks. My kid can borrow my car until then.
