CLASSIC CARS IN HAVANA

Beyond the blend of baroque, colonial and Art Deco architecture, Havana possesses a unique cultural energy that has evolved over 500 years of tumultuous history.  Classic cars are a common sight in Havana and throughout most of Cuba.  Most of these vehicles are used as taxis to cover the cost of gas and maintenance.  Some of these cars have been meticulously restored and maintained.  Others, not so much as you can see from these photos.
