So, What About All Those Classic American Cars in Cuba?

From the January 2, 2015, Chicago Tribune "Vintage Quest" by Daniel Trotta.

American vintage car buffs are salivating over the possibilities as U.S.-Cuban relations loosen up.  Luis Abel Bango had been looking for his dream car, a 1957 Chevy Bel Air for seven years and has found one in Cuba which he is purchasing for $7,000.  His black-and-white four-door has been kept in excellent shape.

There are some 60,000 vintage cars in Cuba, left over from the pre-Castro days in 1959.  But, for every hidden gem, there are many beaten-up clunkers which have been run down or stripped for parts.
