These Are the Classic Cars of Cuba
2 August 2013 - Carbuzz
The island nation of Cuba is sort of a time capsule, at least in terms of its cars.
Ever since the US trade embargo was fully enacted back in 1962, no new American cars have made it to Cuba. Sure, there may be some newer cars that came from other countries every now and then, but the real gems are those classic American cars dating back to the Fifties and even earlier. Owners are forced to find creative mechanical solutions whenever their car breaks down, and the end results are fascinating and beautiful. See some of the cars for yourself in this photo gallery.
