It's not necessarily the same story for used car dealers who say the clunkers program could put them out of business you know.
One used car dealers decided to offer his own instead -- take a listen.
And buyers -- -- as it may be -- Just to.
Work as a way to -- and.
Help joining us now -- more -- cash for jumpers program is Tracey Myers owner frank Myers auto Max.
Great to see -- Tracy thank you very much appreciate it.

There's something wrong -- destroying working cars you know pouring that tell liquid down they -- did through the fuel tank that clogs up the edit.
I mean if a car can be turned around.
Maybe it should be maybe it says as it probably Johnny -- You have a problem that and you turn around he's used cars and get him back in a row.
That's correct your biggest problem with cash for clunkers program however is that it discriminates.
It discriminates against used car dealers and hard working men and women in America they can't afford or don't want a new car and that's where our biggest problem came from.
How does your program work explained all of the details so people understand what you are indeed offering.
Well it's real easy what we do is we'll -- their trade and take the fair market value and will give them an additional 15100 dollars more.
And -- trades were based on today's market.
Fifteen and expediting -- they won't let.
Okay correcting they can trade any car truck -- issue they and they can buy any car drug banner issue the nothing is excluded because we think that Americans should have a choice of what kind of car they can -- there's too many -- only cash for clunkers program.
And and then you go ahead and turn that car around and and conceivably could make a profit on right.
All correct and that's the biggest question that we're having from consumers and people in the community.
They're asking us you know how are you putting all your money into this program and you're losing money you're in business to make money -- of course we are but unlike the government program they're taking these cars and -- -- perfectly good used cars now.

We've got people standing in line to show and we got salespeople that away you know two and three clients at a time he's been unbelievable.
Now have you had this same kind of problems that that new car dealers have had.
Or have you been somehow insulated from a lot of their worst problems.

You know -- it's there's a method to the madness but what we're trying to it is -- -- trying to help people they can't afford don't want a new car.
He into a good dependable used car because once again not everyone can afford or possibly want a new car and we're just here to help them do that so.
We're here to help them out of car that they want to buy -- being made to have to purchase a car.
