Cuba is pretty close to the U.S., did you get a stop over?

The nicest ones you see there are still 20 footers, then there's the 40 footers, the 60 footers and the ones that look ok from space. Very rare is an original engine. Most are diesels with various weird and not so wonderful powertrains & underpinnings. The 58 Buick we rode in for example sounded like it could fall apart at any moment and had no window glass......it was a 30 footer . That's it in the last & 3rd last photo.

Looks ok in the pics, just goes to show how pictures can be deceiving. Whats the story with the orange one that looks like its got a garbage bag over the windscreen?

There's an interesting story to it, I believe it's due to their poor economy and US sanctions on Cuba, their trade was cut with the US and they were left in a time warp.

Some classic car lovers from the US would seek the rare cars & parts from Cuba.

I was wondering how they could afford the fuel - now I know. So somewhere there must be piles of old V8s sitting pulled out of cars.

Yes, I was wondering where the V8 graveyard was.
