Need I explain why Cuba’s classic cars are so cool? I’m not even a “car person” and I could sit in a street-side bar for hours, mojito in hand, watching this living museum of automobiles parade by. You see this is particularly unusual for me. I come from a family of motorsport enthusiasts. My father is a mechanic, who initially inherited his mechanical workshop from my grandfather, another mechanic. I spent many school holidays at the workshop, trying to escape even if it meant to the nearest library. If like me you have little knowledge or interest in cars but an appreciation for great design, you’ll enjoy this eye candy. For those fortunate enough to be travelling to the Caribbean island, you’ll find these cars used as taxis for tourists, so make sure you take a cruise. Bring on those pastel hued, timecapsule, dream-mobiles!
Cuba is a living museum of vintage cars. One can’t imagine how much time and sweat has been spent keeping these beauties on the road.
Peace, love & inspiring travel,
