If you're going to do it, do it now.

Because the "Cash for Clunkers" program ends on Monday at 8 p.m., due to them running out of the $3 billion allotted for the program. Originally they had thought $1 billion might last until November. 

As I ventured to the university parking lot to start my now ten-year-old Honda Passport (made in Indiana at an Isuzu factory, incidentally) and found that the battery wasn't starting, I had briefly considered getting $4500 for bringing it in to buy, say, a Scion tC or a Honda Accord. 

And then I realized I had no money.
