Cuba’s cars

Many things are different in Cuba

  • There are hardly any shops.
  • Nobody is driving on the highways.
  • The beautiful houses of Havanna would probably be restored in any other part of the world. In Havanna they are only kept together by makeshift constructions.
  • Rum is, in fact, cheaper than water in a lot of places.
  • Cuba’s music you can only find in Cuba.
  • There are two different currencies to pay with.

But one thing a traveller in Cuba already notices at the airport is the absolutely extraordinary cars you can see all over the island. American roadcruisers which have been running for more than half a century. Next to them: Russian brands, not much younger – relics from the formerly Soviet funded socialism. And next to those: Weird vehicles from all over the world and from all times imaginable.

Cuba is a real paradise for car lovers. At least, the facade is. Because the inner life of most of these cars has long been swapped, often several times.

I took a lot of pictures of cars during my time in Cuba. Here are a few of them. Enjoy!
