There is something that always
attracts the visitors' attention on the streets and avenues
all over the island. No matter which country he comes from,
he'll be surprised to see what many have already called
the "Rolling Museum". This museum is the result of talent
and creativeness of the Cuban people. Cars from different
North American factories like Ford, General Motors and Chrysler,
mostly from the 40's and 50's, can be found turning a corner
or stopping at a red light. Models like Ford Standard, Ford
Deluxe, Mercury, Edstel, convertible Cadillac, Cadillac
Deluxe, Golden Cadillac, Buick Deluxe, Chevrolet Standard,
Chevrolet Deluxe, Pontiac, Chrysler Imperial, Chrysler Deluxe
and Standard, De Soto, Dodge, Kaiser, Henry J., Hudson,
Oldsmobile and Plymouth can be seen everywhere and anywhere.
These old cars are about 10% of the cars circulating at
the present time and proud 4th and 5th generation owners
meticulously preserve many. Private collectors have come
to the island to buy these cars, well-known photographers
come seeking unusual images, important TV broadcasting stations
have made reports about Cuban "old-cars" owners that have
re-engineered for more than 30 years these historic automobiles
are often stopped by inquisitive passing tourists.
Come and see the "rolling museum"
yourself it is truly a unique experience.
