Clunker program hailed as a hit

Email

The Cash for Clunkers program, or Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS), has been parked for good and U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has judged it to be a "wild success."

It was also a wild success for some local dealers.

Bruce Wiitanen, vice president of Juettner Motors in Alexandria, said, "In terms of selling cars, the program was very successful. We sold basically all of our qualifying inventory."
