In addition to the sun and the heat, two other important factors help attract Canadian visitors to Cuba in winter: the affordable price of the trip and, if they’re car buffs, those (mostly) beautiful old American cars!
But before you trudge through the slush to the airport, you need to know a few things about these cars. First of all, if you think you're going to find the retro car of your dreams, you should know that many of these old-timers are beautiful from far but far from beautiful. Few of them, if any, have been finished to meet the standards we’re used to here, if only because the Cuban working on them don’t have access to the same materials and equipment as we do.
Then there’s the price they’ll throw at you, certainly more than you’d hoped. And if that doesn’t stop you, there may be regulations preventing you from taking it out of the country. Truth is, you could find the equivalent in North America in better condition, with less fuss and for a much better price!
