"CLASSIC CHEVROLETS" Cuba Transportation Tip by swesn

Cuba Transportation: 175 reviews and 159 photos

  Still vrooming along
by swesn

Cuba must be the American Dream Car Haven for classic-car lovers. The models are mostly from the 1950s, just before the Cuban Revolution.

While cars of this age had died everywhere else in the world long ago, here, because the Cubans are the best mechanics in the world (nothing is ever thrown away, everything is fixed), the cars were all given a second, third or whatever chance in life.

Some grand old ladies are sputtering and barely surviving. Others are mighty impressive, with fine paint jobs and smooth red, white leather upholstery inside.
