Those luxury vehicles

So, we have a problem on hand. What to do with those confiscated gas guzzling luxury vehicles? Nobody will or should buy them. They are too expensive to operate and as a nation we can not afford them. Vehicles in Bangladesh are for transportation and nobody should be allowed to fulfill the sick desire of impressing others with illegally gotten things.

We can auction them off to the foreign commercial or diplomatic entities if they want to buy them. If that does not work then we can sell those to specialized taxi fleets. If somebody wants to rent a Hummer and burn some cash and petrol ( that is the sad part) then let them do that.

I think those would be very popular in weddings. Those prospective grandparents can tell the story of their ride in a Hummer to their grandchildren.

I have also a suggestion for the licence plate number: It was X's. X here means the current owner. It should make those current owners very happy. After all, that is what they wanted: crude publicity for their new found prosperity.
