Phillipines cracks down on smuggling by crushing exotics

A Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche Cayenne, Carrera, BMW and possibly 15 more high-end auos have been sentenced to death via steam roller by the President of the Phillipines, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

The cars had been smuggled into the country through a former US Naval base in Subic, and Pres. Arroyo is determined to make a spectacle of their destruction and discourage other would be smugglers from attempting to avoid import taxes. The event will be even broadcast live across the country, and will no doubt appear on You Tube soon after. We'll let you know when it does.

The Phillipines used to auction cars that were caught being smuggled into the country, but since the smugglers were usually the auction winners and got their cars back, President Arroyo will sacrifice sculpted sheetmetal, carbon fiber and low-profile rubber to make a point to her people.

That almost seems like a crime in itselft to destroy those cars! Sell them and donate the money to schools, health, homeless people, sometime, just don't crush 'em!!

England crushes for not paying road fund tax, and if you use fuel that the duty has not been paid on it.

Crushing motors from illegal activities is a total waste they should sell them and pay the money to the tax man.

Found a place to scrap my car found this place to be the best.
