Ten cars you'll see in Cuba (Surprise! They're not all American classics)

Cuba is perhaps the only country where classic American cars from the 1950s share the road with classic Eastern European cars on a daily basis. It's also the only country where, if a modern Geely clips your 1950s Cadillac, the traffic police are bound to arrive in a 1980s Lada. A nation frozen in time in more ways than one, it would be an understatement to say that Cuba has a diverse fleet of cars and trucks.

It is often the 1950s American cars that we hear about and see in the few news reports that we have access to, but the reality on the ground has changed dramatically over the past decade. There are plenty of European and South American companies doing business in Cuba. Those companies are allowed to bring their own cars and trucks, and there are also car rental agencies where tourists from just about everywhere except the U.S. can rent a modern car -- an MG, Geely or even an Audi -- to travel around the island.
