This isn't a case of cash for clunkers -- more like crack for a clunker.

Deputies in Fresno County, Calif., have busted a guy they charge tried to trade his dad's s car for $50 worth of crack cocaine.

Deputies arrested the 39-year-old man early yesterday morning, after his father reported his Lincoln had been stolen. When deputies arrived at the father's home, they saw the son walking up the street.

Deputies say they determined the car had been sold for drugs.

Authorities later located the missing Lincoln and busted the driver, too.

Officials haven't released the names of the those involved.
