Been to Cuba twice now. Not fully sure how it works but as far as in aware they use a lot of old American cars but transplant the engines for smaller capacity local engines which is how they manage to keep them on the road

Yes they’re probably the best mechanics in the world, they just use whatever they can get their hands on to keep the car’s running
