CUB01.0002.xxf1s

As suggested by this streetscape in Old Havana (the old city harbor) vintage vehicles are a regular mode of transportation throughout Cuba. Since 1962, the U.S. trade blockade has effectively prevented any new cars from arriving. But even though a few auto dealers in Europe and Russia are willing to defy the blockade and the attendant U.S. sanctions, not many Cubans have the money to buy new vehicles. Hungry Planet: What the World Eats (p. 99).
