classic frankestiens from Cuba
#1
Well here are a few pics of the of some of the classic American cars in Cuba. One thing you should know is that none of these have original engines. Most have diesel engines and they all come from non U.S. cars. Like Nissan's, Mazda's and Mercedes. Look at the ingenuity on the motorcycle hahaha they will fix something no matter how.

THANKS for the memories.

Those pictures remind me of the Philippines. I tell you, necessity is the mother of invention. I would think they would have some nicely preserved car bodies over there.

Again, Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Eric! Necessity is the mother of invention, and lack of money may be the father. Great pics!

Cuba must have been the other dumping ground for four door cars
in Australia we only got four door versions
no wagons
no two doors
no convertibles
and no hard tops
just your basic cars
and most were six cylinder models
with three on the tree gear boxes

I've always appreciated seeing any old car preserved no matter what the brand. Nothing like a real survivor with the homemade "fixes" to keep it going!
