Due to its unique history, many of Cuba's aspects remain frozen in time. With an estimated 60,000 antique vehicles still in active use, it has more classic cars per person than any other nation in the world.
A lifetime after rolling off Detroit production lines, yank tanks manufactured by Ford, General Motors, Chrysler and others remain in active service on Cuban streets. Once the exclusive property of Cuba's large, pre-revolution middle-class, these cars are kept running by the pooled resources of today's poverty-stricken families.
In this beautiful book, Wayne Gerard Trotman captures the romance, beauty and nostalgia of the classic cars of Cuba, iconic symbols of a quintessentially Cuban, time-warped dream.
