Holiday Highlights: Classic cars.

One thing that Cuba is famous for is its classic cars. Since the American trade embargo came in to full force in the 1960s it has been crazy difficult for the Cubans to get cars. So they made do with what they had and many of the vintage cars are in amazing condition.













There was limited automotive trade with Russia up until the mid 90s, meaning that you see the odd Lada, and more recently some cars imported from Asia. Foreign diplomats have the fanciest cars around. I think I'd rather one of the classics, wouldn't you?

  2. They were so cool. Most of the taxis were classic cars, we took them pretty much everywhere :)
