90 Taurus misses cash for clunkers??

I'm depressed as I write my second post after lurking these boards for the better part of a year. I've spent the last 4 years in a 90 Taurus 3.0 L and I'm dying to get in a CGM 2LT with inferno orange interior. Just really blows that this old car is rated 20 mpg combined and misses the cutoff at 18. This car otherwise fits the description "clunker" to the tee. :( I'm wondering if I can get this car to slide by for the voucher or if I have to just forget it.

Are you going to let the fact a Govt. program won't give you money decide whether or not you get a Camaro?

Program or no program, I'm getting the Camaro. I'll give it a shot anyway. If not, oh well.

Looks like I'll qualify for the full 4500.00 which is great given my Lincoln has 93K miles on it and is really only worth 3500.00 at best on trade.

Rather a shame really because its a really way nice driver. The computer reports its getting 19MPG if I really keep my foot out of it. Guess its off to the scrap yard.
