Cashed Out

Posted:

   SHERMAN, TX -- After weeks of hype, Cash for Clunkers came to an end earlier this evening.

  The government program initially started to help boost the economy cashed out by 7pm this evening. Those interested needed to have all paperwork in the government website by this deadline to qualify for the deal.

   Local dealerships, like Bob Utter Ford were expecting many customers throughout the day ready to buy in the Cash for Clunkers program, but it seemed to be a different story by the end of the day.

"The weekend was really good, the week before was good. But today with it being the last day it's a little unfortunate -- disappointing there's not more traffic out there," said Sales Manger, Jamie Gland of Bob Utter Ford.

   They said they've closed a total of 64 deals since the program started.

   Blake Utter, from Blake Utter Ford said that most people who wanted to trade in their clunkers probably already did because of the amount of traffic they had over the weekend.

"We were not exceptionally busy. matter of fact Saturday morning it was pretty much dead. As Saturday progressed we got more and more cutomers in the store," Utter said.

   As of now, these dealerships are waiting to receive their payment from government.
