Import Cars Mob Russian Border

Want to see something else than always the same tired parking lot at Long Beach? Go to Russia, tovaritch!  There, car haulers are lining up for miles and miles and miles at the border. As reported yesterday, the Russians raised their car import duty to a prohibitive 30 percent, and whoever wanted to ship a car to Russia did it, before the new rate went into effect. Some at the end of the line didn’t quite make it.
