Many Americans think of the 50's vintage cars in perfect condition when Cuba is mentioned. These cars
look like the originals, but have few of the original parts. The Cubans have been incredibly creative
maintaining these cars; fashioning many parts by hand since few genuine parts are availble to them.



Vehicles being used as cabs frequently have diesel engines
because diesel fuel is approximately half the price of gasoline.


The Russian Lada is a car frequently seen on Havana Streets as is the equally attractive Muscovitch.

Out for a cruise.
