A Hongqi CA7220 is selling Bags in China

A Hongqi CA7220 selling bags, seen parked near to a shopping mall in the Fangzhuang residential area in southern Beijing. Selling goods from cars is not unusual in China but this was the first time I saw a Hongqi (Red Flag) on the job, a brand that once was only available for those with the money and the right connections. Time…
Wallets in the back. All fake LV-stuff and such. Cheapest bag for 20 yuan, cheapest wallet for five. A neat second hand CA7220 will cost some 50.000 yuan, cheapest go for 20.000. The Hongqi CA7220 was based on the Audi 100 that was made in China by the FAW-Volkswagen joint venture. Power came from a Chrysler 2.2 liter four-cylinder. Shiny exhaust is after market, likely bought with the profits from selling those bloody bags!
