Re: The Cars Of Cuba

When the trade barriers eventually come down, those old cars could be Cuba's #1 export.
They'd sell 'em to collectors in the US and buy a Hyundai.

Re: The Cars Of Cuba

There was an article in Mototrend, or some mag that said the vast majority of the cars are Frankenstein cars. They have been canabalized from multiple vehicles to keep them running and are worth nothing, but they look tremendous.

Yep - or a pretty good clone. If '53, it's not OEM color tho - they were white only, from the factory.
