Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at May 27th, 2009 1:06am

The term "Cash for Clunkers" might sound familiar to you - it's a hot topic in the news and across the automotive blogs right now. Details: Two bills are currently under consideration in the House and Senate, each of them offering their own set of pros and cons.
