Walking along the Cuban streets
one is bemused by the numerous American classic cars that are
parked. Blue, white, red, yellow green or purple shining in the
sun, the American classic cars form part of the Cuban urban and
rural life. There is no need to walk in an auto show in the big
American or European cities when you are in Cuba. In every
street, in every corner, classic cars are there for one to gaze.
The cars though built in the years1925 to 1950 are unique and
still in good condition. Despite the embargo on the country
since the Cuban revolution, the spare parts and engines not
available on the Cuban market, the Cuban artisans through their
creativity and ingenuity have managed to keep the car running.
Used as taxis or rented for great occasions like weddings, the
American classic cars are of great monetary and sentimental
value to the Cubans.
