The Average Clunker Traded in for C4C Was 15 Years Old

The government has released final Cash for Clunkers numbers–so far I’ve glanced through the summary and additional statistics. And one stat I did not know was that the average age for the Clunkers turned in was almost 15 years, and the average odometer reading was over 160,000 miles. (Click the graphic below to be able to read it.)

Picture 139

In other words, these really were Clunkers.

The summary data breaks out total voucher amounts issued by state. And there’s even a spreadsheet of which individual models were purchased (which we can use to figure out how many of these cars were actually built in the US). More than 14,000 people bought Priuses under C4C, for example.

JimWhiteGNV The oligarchs have forgotten their Dylan: "When you ain't got nothing, you got nothing to lose". Re-learning in Baltimore now.

JimWhiteGNV Why don't we hear stats on how many citizens were injured in Baltimore last night? We only hear how many police were injured.

JimWhiteGNV If you must call those in the streets in Baltimore "animals", I would point out that animals attack only when needing food or in own defense

bmaz .@MikeForester The Baltimore mayor seemed to have a bit of perspective, but, yes, Gov Hogan seemed like Ross Barnett or early George Wallace
