The Port of Hueneme in Ventura County moves a lot of cars. The ships that transport cars, trucks, tractors, military vehicles and more are known as RO-ROs, which stands for roll on, roll off.

Here we see cars rolling off. I once waited for my contact to connect with me, and in a matter of minutes watched pretty much every model Jaguar drive by. I wanted them all.

Inside the RO-RO you find multiple decks of parking lots — these specialized ships are really vast seafaring parking structures.

What may surprise you is that Japanese cars get shipped to Asia, just like these Hondas that I photographed. These were built in the USA, where land costs and other advantages have brought manufacturing plants stateside.
