Where Did All of Those Emissions-Incorrect Volkswagens Go? [GALLERY]
Remember that little scandal a few years ago that saw the soon-to-be-defunct U.S. EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) discovering that Volkswagen had lied
a little a lot about the emissions of their diesel vehicles? It cost them over $18 billion.
Kind of a big deal.
You probably know someone who was affected by this, if you weren’t directly affected yourself. The scandal led to the recall of millions of Volkswagen diesel vehicles.
So where did they all go?
To none other than Minnesota’s butthole, Brainerd!
That’s right, BRAIN’RD (as it’s properly pronounced), home of that sh*t-yourself-til-you-drop disease. What better place to take Volkswagen’s sh*t, than good ol’ BRAIN’RD?!
In all semi-seriousness, a few months ago I noticed the former Potlatch was turning into a parking lot. I figured, “Must’ve gone on a hiring binge.” Nope. A friend informed me that they were all Volkswagens that were part of the emissions scandal.
How many are there? Check out the gallery.
