    30 cars that cannot be owned in the USA

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 17 Jan 2017, 12:08 pm

    While the United States is considered to be one of the few countries in the world where citizens can enjoy all kinds of freedoms, it has an unexpectedly strict importation law regarding cars.

    It goes so far that citizens of United States are not allowed to import new cars that are considered more than legal in places like Germany and Japan.

    Some of these cases have a solid reasoning behind them, but others not so much. Here are 30 vehicles you are not allowed to own in United States.

    Get the list from Yahoo and Buzzdrives HERE




    Think we are bad done by here in Britain ? Well read what you will find in the link and find out that the great USA is just about as restrictive as any other banana republic might be.

    That list is amazing and interesting. I did not know that America were so restrictive of car imports.

    In some circles that is simply called protectionism.

    Reading the full link, they do seem to have a lot of reasons to behave like this, but in the main it all comes down to protectionism and little else.

    Maybe we could copy them in this.
