When I saw the Maserati story I looked up it's MPG at fueleconomy.gov. For a 2.8 L six that thing sucked up some gas. Then I saw on the page that it was labeled (CLUNKER). Checked around and discovered that it now identifies the vehicles that qualify as a clunker. Amazed that my mom and dad's Grand Caravan with the 6 cylinder doesn't qualify.

I drove my friends 1972 Citroen SM. A Citroen with a turbo Maserati motor.
What a blast! I have no idea what mileage he got but what a ride.

I think that cars that dont use alot of gas still qualify... there are some smaller cars and very late model vans at our local dealers lots with "CFC" on the windows. There are two 2002-04 Grand Caravans with CFC or CLUNKER on the windows... suprises me that so many nice and late models are being traded in on this... I would have thought they would have higher trade-in than that.
