Cars

DID YOU KNOW?

posted: 06/30/15

There are an estimated 60,000 vintage cars in Cuba.

It's been nearly 50 years since new parts were imported to Cuba in the early 60's.

Until last October, Cuban residents were forbidden from buying and selling vehicles without the government's permission.

There are several functioning and preserved 1929 Ford Model T cars in Cuba. Many of those found in the U.S. and other countries are severely aged, badly rusted or even beyond repair.

The repairs of these cars are left to owners.

Many repairs are cobbled together with household items or homemade replacement parts.
