A photographic cruise of Cuba's vintage cars.
Cuba is a vintage car lover's paradise. Until the 1960s, Cuba was the world's leading importer of American automobiles. As many as ten thousand of these mid-century American cars are still used in Cuba, making it the world's largest living automotive museum.

Vintage Cadillacs, Chevrolets, Fords, Pontiacs, Ramblers, Packards, Studebakers and Hudsons are common on Cuban streets and coastal highways, with hot primary colors, dazzlingly ornate chrome, sinfully luxurious interiors, and defiantly large girths. Some cars have been restored to their former glory. Others have been kept in working condition by using Russian truck engines and hand-forged parts.
