    What a joke “Sales of Imported Cars Jump Over 300% in Brazil ”
    3.949 units in one month !!!!!

    Proof that Brazil is ANTI more open trade…for imports !!!

    50’000 cars imported annually (including the big “jump”) represents LESS than 2 % of cars produced in Brazil….by foreign cars manufacturers !!

    As you can see my critics time and again just prove to be Soooooo true.
