drive from cuba!!

Did any of you guys see those cubans on the news (FOX) in that 51 chevy truck 40 miles off the coast of florida? I am not making this up they had a 51 chevy truck with oil drums strapped to it to make it float and a propeller on the drive shaft! In my opinion if they are that desperate and ingenious let them in!

I did see that. That was pretty ingenious. Makes you wonder how bad they have it over there to want to come over here that bad...

HEY OLD: We could start putting all the empty beer cans in a rubber floating sleeve and by the end of the weekend we would have a bridge to Cuba. It would be great to drive down and get some old car parts We could sell them to 4 Jaw...He would never know the difference ..DAVE

I did not know they had satellite television in Cuba? Do you think these guys watch Junkyard Wars or Monster Garage?

The Navy sunk it? What's wrong with them people. They loved their car so much that they brought it with them. Now what are they going to drive once they get on dry land. I bet they had that car in the family for generations. (They don't have car salesmen in Cuba you know so no one can buy new cars.)

Talking

"The Havana Hillbillies". If you saw the article on Autoweek several years ago, those old cars (except maybe Castro's) aren't in very nice shape after being repaired with the available parts since 1959. They did an article and went to one shop that would cut the input shaft off of a dead car that had a good clutch and weld it onto the trans of a running car that had the clutch wear out, all sorts of weird crossbreeding just to have a set of wheels. So they probably didn't intend to wind up with that combo, that's just the ony parts they could scrounge, it was really their fishing boat.
