Hey buddy, need a car?

“Go out and buy a car! CARS.com! We’re — it’s on! Let’s do it.”

— Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, speaking at a July 27th event to kick off the government’s so-called “cash-for-clunkers” rebate program aimed at encouraging debt-ridden Americans to purchase new automobiles.

“You can drive off the lot in a new car today, no money down,” LaHood said. “We’d be crazy to offer these amazing deals for long.”
He declined to characterize the new government incentives as a going-out-of-business sale, telling reporters he preferred to see them as a great opportunity for consumers who don’t need “costly add-ons” like extended warranties.
A Department of Transportation spokesman told reporters later that the public should take advantage of “this fantastic limited-time offer,” adding he was “pretty sure” he could get you a free undercoating for “little to no charge.”
