Car buyers, where art thou?

I notice that there has been a large auto transporter anchored in Plumper Sound for over a week now. My guess is that it is unable to proceed on to Annacis Island terminal to unload it’s cargo, probably because the yards there and at all the points across the country are plugged up with unsold inventory.
Does anyone have any other ideas?  The ship’s name may give a clue to the maker. I’m too far away to see.
Should be some terrific deals available on Japanese and Korean imports if you have the cash!
I remember the same thing happening in the recession of 1981/ 82 when I worked in that field.
It will be interesting to see how long it sits there.
