Cuba’s Car Scene Carves a Slice in Time!
All over Havana, you’ll find thousands of American cars from the 1940s and 1950s. These cars still account for a significant form of transportation for the locals. Seeing them everywhere makes you feel like you’re in a time-warp. But it all stems from the U.S. embargo that was put in place in 1962. It meant that American companies could no longer do any business in Cuba. Once that happened, the locals couldn’t get any new American cars or parts. So, they rolled with what they had and have kept them in good condition.
