    I thought you said the rest of the world didn't care about pollution ?
    Seems they know about the problem and need to start cleaning their air too.

    Good point. I remember after Katrina, we were getting warnings here about dealers trying to sell cars that had been completely submerged in Katrina. I looked at an outback that I am pretty sure had come from the flood. Of course China is a bit farther away but where there is an almighty dollar to me made, someone will find a way!

    I am sure this was meant tongue in cheek.
    The vehicles don't meet our safety standards, emission regulations or are certified for import.

    Attempting to import a foreign vehicle is a nightmare.
    Imported motor vehicles are subject to U.S. air pollution control (emission) standards, safety standards, and bumper standards. Most vehicles manufactured abroad that conform to these rules are manufactured and exported expressly for sale in the United States. Foreign made vehicles not manufactured for U.S. exports are unlikely to meet all relevant standards.
    Importing a Motor Vehicle into the U.S.

    In other words .... forget about it.

    I don't see them coming here directly from China. Something more like via Mexico. I have learned that people can pull off amazing scams when money is their goal.

    Their people will get on board with it. They will sell new cars. Using an similar idea from this country that had lots of merit only to be ridiculed by the right wing media here.
