The Fabulous Cars...

The old cars here are amazing. Most of them have been totally redone and are really beautiful. Most engines have been replaced with diesel engines and other parts have been remade, replaced, restored or machined to keep these cars on the road. They look great but the diesel fumes smell and the cars squeak as they go by. I imagine them rolling along with mobsters in them in the 1950’s. I saw my father’s 1954 Buick and my first car, a 1958 Chevy Biscayne the first day we landed in Havana. Most of the photos were taken with my iPhone as the cars passed or were parked in the street. The most beautiful ones were in Havana but they are all over the country. They are almost all taxi’s and provide a nice income for Cubans who have them.
