    Got to get them off the boat somehow. It's not like they took them on a 50 mile trek...

    Cool vid!

    Probably a large parking area where they can load them onto the truck.

    A grainy 40 second video of a few dirty, plastic covered cars? You can barely make out what they are.

    Front page news will be when they sell some of them.

    I think the point of his comment is the fact that the SS has arrived on American soil is the front page news. And I agree, there should be more buzz surrounding this car.

    Even the title of this post wasn't specific enough to get me to view it for days. This should be big news.

    What a color palate! Black, silver, white... Granted, I'd go with white or black myself, but that sure is drab, lol

    They aren't shipped on the boat already on transport trucks. Once the boat docks, the cars are moved off the boat (easiest way is to drive them) and put in a lot, from which they are then put on transport trucks and trains (once again, they will be driven onto them) to be delivered to the dealerships.
