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

Truly stunning as well as the one driving past. A nice chrome or stainless aerial would be more in keeping in my opinion but hey I would love to see it in the flesh let alone own it!
Thanks for posting and brightening up a difficult time.

We were there a couple of years ago, and the owner of the Chevy we hired boasted that it still had the original V8 engine (he said a lot now have diesel implants!). It may have been the original, but it wasn’t using all 8........

Looking around Havana, we came to the conclusion that Cuba, post Castro, was opening up, so better to visit sooner rather than later, lockdown allowing,obviously.
