Cash for clunkers?

I was wondering what this program is and how much I could expect for a 93' Chrysler Concorde. The engine doesnt run but it has a nice tan leather interior on it that I installed myself and a good tranny last I checked. I was wondering if I could possibly get enough out of it to get my engine in my 94' ES rebuilt as the lower rod bearings went on the 7th. Please leave a post if you know anything about this as I am desperate to keep my 94'.

cash for clunkers is a $4,500 tax credit, but I think in order to get it you have to buy a new more fuel efficient car

LH's are too fuel efficient to qualify, I'm pretty sure.

Yep to qualify the old vehicle has to get 18 mpg or less combined EPA estimate.

Well then would anybody be interested in buying this 93' Concorde for about $600? The paint is bad and it need a few electrical upgrades to be at full LXi standard but other than that the only problem is that the engine wont run. If you want it PLEASE let me know as I dont want to get rid of my 94' ES because of a blown engine, Seeing as of recently Ive put about $1500 into the vehicle. So please let me know if you want the Corde.

The old 1st gen's with the 3.5 will qualify. You have to trade in a vehicle with 18 mpg or less combined fuel economy according to the government's economy estimates. For my 1997 dodge intrepid, the government lists it at 18 mpg. The 3.2L will not qualify.

They can save some parts, but not all.

That's weird. That same site you used says my '96 3.5L is good for 19 combined.

Know the whole idea reminds me of the Movie Robots...

Stop the flow of parts for older stuff, force everyone to upgrade type deal.

cash for clunkers is bs, my 86 cadillac won't even qualify. and it's deciving because it has nothing to do with the condition of the car, I wouldn't call a car a clunker just because of the gas mileage it gets from the factory.
