The US "Cash for Clunkers" government incentive program has already blown through the $1 billion in funding. That means there are already nearly 250,000 new cars sold via the program. The program just started in July and its already out of funds within a month. I guess thats a success. Last I had heard some people were talking like it wouldn't work or that nobody could find cars to exchange that even qualified. It doesn't necessarily mean the program is over, the government is talking about securing more funds. We'll see.
