14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Old Cars, Havana

Since the late 1950's, American autos and parts have been embargoed for shipment to Cuba. Since then, the Cubans have kept them running by cannibalizing other cars, making parts from scratch or using engines and parts meant for other machines like tractors, generators or water pumps. In most of these cars, about the only thing original is the body and most of them contain a lot of body filler
