Cigars, Castro, Rum, Heat, Colorful Buildings and Cars from the 1940s and 1950s are the things we think about when we think – Cuba. This post is about the cars of Cuba!
While I know practically nothing about classic cars. I do know these are beautiful and I love the vibrant colors. I could look at these all day long. Havana is a moving car museum and makes all those fields I have walked thru looking at sitting classic cars seem like a museum of the dead. Havana is a living moving classic car show.
These are a source of pride to the Cubans. These classic automobiles are held together with bubble gum and blender motors (a quote from our tour guide). He said Cubans have suffered and had so little, due to the 1961 US Embargo, for so long – but they make due, they fix and they mend, and they preserve regardless of the limits that are set on them – and that makes they proud not angry. A great lessen in life.
These mini cabs are so adorable.
