Yank Tanks

No blog about Cuba would be complete without a mention of the ancient American cars that are still on the road here.  They are all pre 1960 with a few Soviet Union cars from the 1970s thrown in.  These are not the possessions of classic car collectors, but rather the primary means of transportation for people who use, and reuse, EVERYTHING out of necessity.

They are a real part of Cuba.


This is the car that picked us up at the airport in Havana. It was just serendipity that we saw it on the highway on the way to Vinales!
