Cuban car pics...

My Dad just returned from 12 days in Cuba. Knowing that I'm a rodder, he took a bunch of pics for me. Thought you all might enjoy. Please forgive the lack of automotive focus in some of the pics; as I said, he was doing me a favor.

Some amazing stuff when you consider that they haven't gotten a new American vehicle there since the late '50s, I believe. You'll also see some later model Russian cars (incl. the taxis) & a city bus that is pulled by a semi.

I hope you likey.

Tasty are´nt they ?
I think you´ll find a lot of them have had their original motors replaced by Russian diesels.
Here´s a load more, American cars in Cuba.

In your second set of pics, the middle pic that looks like a 48 Chevy with the gal looking at it, very interesting design (the car and yep, the gal too ). Cool pictures, I've heard that the Cubans are very clever at keeping these old cars running. Thanks for the pictures. Dan
