You may remember my “spirited” post over the Cash for Clunkers program a little while back.
Well as a follow up here is the official government list of cars sent to their deaths through the program.
Of note are the 63 BMW 6 series cars, including 13 635csi models, a 850i, a M3, and a M5.
Mercedes suffered as well, can you imagine over 100 560SEC s crushed? That is literally tons of usable parts from one of the greatest Benz engines gone. Looks like 11 Merc V12 engines also have made their last trip. No wonder parts are so expensive. A pair of AMG cars, a C36 and a C43, were sent away too and gasp a 500E.
A number of high end Audi models also are on the list and a sprinkling of Porsches.
Most surprising, though not German, on the list is the 1997 Bentley (listed as a Rolls Royce) Continental R and great oogley moogley a Buick GNX, listed under ASC. If that was a true GNX it could have been rolled and burned and still probably brought more than the CFC allowance.
Post your thoughts or interesting finds after you peruse the list.
