Pieces of Havana’s Rolling Museum

Photo Feature by Ernesto Gonzalez Díaz

HAVANA TIMES – You can see them all over Havana solving thousands of problems mainly as collective taxis.  Those that are in the best condition are available to the always enthusiastic tourists who are ready to take a ride in the time machine.

Chevrolets, Fords, Cadillacs, Dodges, and other makes and models, all prior to 1960, are a sample of Cuban ingenuity and intelligence, put to the test since our beginnings as a nation.

Probably not even the most optimistic of the manufacturers of these cars thought that almost 70 years later they would continue on the streets.

One thought on “Pieces of Havana’s Rolling Museum

  • I have photographed almost 3000 vehicles during my visits to Cuba.
    Very surprised at the lack of traffic on Havana’s streets – Normally teeming with vehicles of all shapes and sizes and wandering pedestrians.
    Disappointed I am unable to post this excellent photoset onto my Tumblr blog.
    Kind regards to all at Havana Times.
