When he comes back from Uni he will be on to it - the other old car is my younger son's mini - also not going at present.

As well as at least 3 campers conked out on the side of the road - in only a 30 mile stretch!

so there shouldn't be any price effect on 10-year+ used cars because if you buy one now in 12 months time the scrappage deal will be over.

"...government figures show".
I'm sceptical about how much difference it's actually made in isolation... they're hardly going to say "sorry, we got it wrong" at a time like this. Hmm.

It 'worked' in europe, and as i predicted previously it'll work to an extent here aswell. Obviously they are betting on recovery in the car market as a whole in line with recovery in economy, consumer spending etc. to kick in by the time the scheme comes to an end. It's a short-term prop or stimulus as politicians like to say. There would be something wrong if these artificial stimulus had no effect. Even a marginal effect would be unusual because of the extreme lows in sales figures, stimulus has a much greater impact when you start from such a low base as in previous months.
