Good luck on your quest to become "Capitolist of the Year" in Communist Red
China. I agree with Scott Roberts. I would be opposed to any "business
plan" that would take more classic cars out of circulation in the free world
for the sole purpose of lining your pockets with a grossly inflated profit
Who would be gaining something from this scheme other than you and the
Chinese government? Would you still be liable to pay U.S. income taxes on
