Cuba Map


Ironically, Cuba is one of the largest repositories in the world of classic American cars from the 1950s. Long-tailed Chevys and Buicks in Cuba since before the revolution still serve as collective taxis in Havana and elsewhere. There are also Soviet automobiles from the seventies and eighties, although the old American cars have more style.
