HAVANA TIMES, Nov. 1 — People who visit Cuba are fascinated when they witness our “rolling museum” consisting essentially of automobiles manufactured in the United States that date back to the distant decades of the 1940s and ‘50s. In other words, these are cars that have been rolling up and down our streets for between 50 and 70 years.
Some of these vehicles can hardly be recognized due to the modifications they’re suffered, but others retain an astonishing degree of preservation thanks to the inventiveness of Cubans who create or adapt parts to keep these autos running.
Many of these cars are used by their owners as collective taxis, which have been modified to fit in the greatest number of people in the smallest amount of space.
