Nice!

I was watching a small documentary that was noting how U.S. classic car collectors will be flocking to Cuba for their cars. Cubans had these cars for the longest time and took meticulous care for them because of rarity of parts. It will be interesting to see how this all turns out for everyone.

I've wondered about that myself.

Thanks guys!. I was talking to a tour guide and he said the government may take steps to prevent the sale of vintage cars as the cars are a big part of Cuban culture.

Amazing to see all the old American iron down there. The parts situation has led to some very creative solutions to problems as well.

I love the panning shots. Good choice of PP too. The first one is kind of funny. Old car with a Mac sticker in the window. :-P
