I’ll take a break here and just sit back and enjoy the eye candy of old cars cruising through Cuba. After the revolution the state allowed people who owned cars before the revolution to keep them and even sell them. Cars from after the revolution were more difficult to get. The revolution took power on January 1, 1959 so owners of cars from the 1950s took very good care of them. Some are in cherry condition, some have plywood floors, lots of bondo paint jobs, or for that matter engines, that are not original. Many have very classy vinyl seat covers.
