Cash For Ford Explorers

The Federal CARS program ('cash for clunkers') has led to a lot of 1990s domestic SUVs taken off the roads. According to Jalopnik, 6 of the top 10 vehicles being removed from American roads are Ford Explorer models. Here's the list:

1. 1998 Ford Explorer
2. 1997 Ford Explorer
3. 1996 Ford Explorer
4. 1999 Ford Explorer
5. Jeep Grand Cherokee
6. Jeep Cherokee
7. 1995 Ford Explorer
8. 1994 Ford Explorer
9. 1997 Ford Windstar
10. 1999 Dodge Caravan
The Ford Explorer was one of the best-selling vehicles of the 1990s. It is still offered in the iconic two-tone Eddie Bauer edition. And somehow, when I think of that 1990s Explorer, I remember it being mentioned in the first verse of Ice Cube's song, 'Down For Whatever' (1993).
