    Nope, has to have been registered and insured for the full previous year, can't just buy one.

    The market value of these 'clunkers' just rose to almost $4500. Anyone ready to purchase a new car buys a clunker for his trade-in and gets a $4500 check from us, the taxpayers.

    My guess is that to keep the list small and manageable, Edmunds limited the list to cars made since 1990--the assumption being that anything manufactured before 1990 would also qualify. It's certainly not a question of eligibility--if you read the text of the legislation (go to http://thomas.loc.gov and search for H.R.2751), you'll see that older vehicles are definitely included.
    Added bonus: there's now a provision for most of the clunker car parts (except the engine block and drive train) to be salvaged and reused, which should please many of the folks opposed to the bill.

    what happened to the older trucks than the 90s? they get terrible gas mileage.
