Quotes

Charlie: Now it's five and a half weeks and I'm still sitting on four Lamborghinis that can't meet spot emissions standards. Now, how many times you wash out with EPA?

Goofs

According to the EPA's 420 publication, Importing Vehicles and Engines into the United States, in 1998 the EPA allowed owners a one-time exemption for importing their foreign cars into the U.S. The EPA does not meet car buyers at the docks, and the idea that Charlie would have had to have the engine modifications right there is ridiculous. Charlie could have easily gotten his one-time EPA waiver for his four Lamborghini's; thus, his having to pay a $10,000 modification for each car before leaving the dock is completely without merit. In the worst case, at the time Charlie could have taken delivery of the vehicles and sold them to the prospective owners, the latter of which was THEIR responsibility to follow EPA guidelines, since Charlie was only a middleman, a broker, which could have also had any required modifications deferred to a later time. Consequently, Charlie's constant and frantic phone calls back to his home base about the cars "becoming legal" were totally unnecessary.
