RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Time is running out to take advantage of the federal government's Cash for Clunkers program. Many dealerships have already stopped accepting applications. The government has set a final deadline for 8 pm this evening.

Nick Scola, the marketing manager for McGeorge Toyota, joined NBC12 to talk about the latest on how the program has worked. See the video at right for his replies.

Q: Nick, you guys have already stopped accepting applications correct?

Q: At last check you have had 29 customers applications rejected. Do they understand that there is a risk taking part and how to they react when you tell them the application was denied?

Q: It seems that at the very least this has got people on to your showroom floor. How has this impacted business that has nothing to do with Cash for Clunkers?
