Classic American cars

Another thing Cuba is famous for is their cars - namely their old classic american cars.

Any car enthusiast would be filled with joy at the selection of cars but heartache at the condition of them. The big American V8 that use to file the engine bays are now small, noisy, powerless Lada engines. The paintwork is original (and flaking), the interiors are original (and cracked) and where something has broke, it has been fixed with what ever is available.

Still they are quite a sight as they slowly rumble down the streets of Habana.
