Polluting car? Sell it for $1000!

In California, if your cars fails a smog check and is thus what they call a gross polluter, the government will buy your car from you for $1,000. This make a lot of sense.

I am using a 1983 ford van for business and I want to get rid of it. I know it’s a gross polluter so I won’t sell it, it needs to be taken off the road. It uses around 3 to 4 quarts of oil a day just for local driving and gets 2 miles to the gallon. Please send me your list of requirements and locations to remove this tank from polluting anymore. Thanks for listening. Robert
