*** It (or its' immediate replacement) is, however, still on the road as of 2015 in mint condition apart from still-missing hubcaps.

* ArtisticLicenseCars [=/=] ArtisticLicenseLaw: The dealership where Clark buys the Wagon Queen Family Truckster has an on-site crusher, for some reason, and destroys a trade-in. Not only would a real car dealer ''keep'' the trade-it so they could resell it, but Clark had only given his car over for ''evaluation''; the dealership hadn't actually purchased Clark's car yet (destruction of private property). They also ordered the wrong model and force Clark to buy it (bait and switch), [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and failed to install the old plates on the new car]], or even a sticker signifying an application for new plates. Clark should have called the police when they crushed his car, but also would have been pulled over for driving without license plates as soon as he left the dealership.
