ABSTRACT
The article reports that in April 2013, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized a Land Rover Defender automobile illegally imported into the port of Baltimore, Maryland, from Great Britain. The U.S. government allows vehicles at least 25 years old to be legally imported without having to meet crash and emissions regulations. Land Rover fans and some old-car dealers illegally import the Defender by affixing the vehicle identification number tag from an old Defender.
