An Exhausting Trade-Off
Motor Trend weighs in on Texas' Drive a Clean Machine program -- by, more or less, encouraging folks from outside the state to drive their exhaust-spewing beater to the Dallas, Houston or Austin areas so they can cash in on the $3,000 exchange program.
Looking to upgrade to a shiny new ride with eco-friendly low emissions? Well come on down to the state of Texas and sell that gross polluter today -- no qualifying trade-in will be refused!
Only, of course, there are several caveats attached to the program -- chiefly, the income cut-off. Still, notes the mag, it's still the "most generous" program of its kind in the U.S. and A. --Robert Wilonsky
