Cars being shipped abroad

This afternoon, I stopped by West Coast Shipping to see what kind of cars are being bought up by foreigners. Come take a look!

The most random of cars are here. Like, someone is really jonesing for a Pontiac Solstice GXP!

We had a long discussion about Porsche prices and how the 928 is the last affordable model left. This one strangely doesn't have a passenger side rear view mirror. Is this normal?

A Plymouth Valiant Scamp? I thought it was a Dodge Dart at first.

The place was really busy. They were loading up five to six containers at a time. These two were being filled with SLs. That's a V12 600SL on the bottom right.

My buddy Ethan in high school had this exact Cougar, except the paint was faded. We tried to replace the front fender once, but it was so heavy, and we were so scrawny, we couldn't do it.

1 of 4,306 King Cobras. Apparently, it was just an expensive cosmetics package.

Bradley GT.

That Imperial in the background was huge.

A Mazda rotary pickup headed for New Zealand.

The GXP Pontiac Solstice and G8 are going to be collectibles in the not too distant future. They were Pontiac's last "hurrah!" and were sold in minimal numbers.
