This killed me. NPR ran something yesterday complaining that pre 1984 cars, the "dirtiest cars", were still on the road because Cash For Clunkers doesn't accept them. They actually used the example of a 1981 Datsun (they didn't specify the model, I presume the host couldn't even recognize 1981 Datsun if you showed her one to begin with) as a car that would still be polluting and can't be traded in, and made the comment of "I would argue a 1981 Datsun is not exactly a classic car."

Listen to the piece, it's only about 3 minutes long. Or, I see now that they have a transcript of it.
I need to stop listening to NPR at work, hearing this really T'd me off. I probably shouldn't worry at all, but... it really ticked me off. :lol:
