I occasionally see a pre-'90s beater, but they're getting uncommon. I imagine a lot of the marginally road worthy ones got scrapped in that Cash for Clunkers scam.

I once saw a truck at Wal-Mart that had a AC window unit stuck in the back window and DUCT TAPED into place. I also saw what looked like two cars welded together to make a hybrid limo.

Agreed, cash 4 clunkers probably took a lot of beaters off the roads prematurely. But I don't think it was a scam. While old classics are great, old beige-mobiles are gas-swilling death traps. I would argue that they cause more accidents, more injuries, and certainly cause more traffic problems when they break down, catch on fire, etc. There should be a perpetual cash 4 clunkers program that encourages people to ditch their rolling hazards.

I see a lot of older cars around. Pretty much the only thing older than the 90's is some pimp-mobile with crazy rims on it though. Plenty from the early '00s and a few from late 90's. I drive through the nicer areas on the way to/from work though, so I see plenty of Audis, Beemers and the occasional Porshe, Ferrari or Lambo mixed in. My new Ram is a '15, but everything else we have is over 10 years old and long paid off.

The pre-'90s stuff is probably better off the road, but a lot of perfectly serviceable '80s and '90s autos were thrown out with the bath water.

So I was putting something in storage yesterday and stumbled upon the box my PS3 came in, but it felt heavier than an empty box should. Opened it up and found my PS2 that I couldn't recall where it got off to. Yay! Been having a blast playing some old games.
