Did they have to crush the 'vette? Philippine cars that were smuggled into the country
without paying taxes.
I wonder how come they just didn't get auctioned off, surely the government could use the money.

The rest of the story. It's not just taxes. These cars are stolen smuggled to USSR where they are switched driving sides (if needed) and new papers are made so they appear as legal cars before they are smuggled into the PI and other country. Of corse customs get their share. In 2010 I was offered a late model Mercedes-Benz at a very very low price and was told of their origin and how they could be sold for such a low price. I turned him down and buy a new 2010 KIA from the Dumaguete dealer. I did not think we needed a Mercedes that bad.:-)
