Talking Went to Cuba (pics, lots with cars)

You guys have liked my photo posts in the past so here's my most recent trip! Spent 4 days in Havana, Cuba with my wife, we absolutely loved it. The people were wonderful and the city had a lot to offer. Just sharing pics here but if anyone has any questions about the trip or Cuba, fire away and I'll do my best to answer.

Whole album can be viewed here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/118489...57691565491272

I would love to go back for the beaches, we really just stayed in Havana but there's so much more to explore

All the best reasons hahaha. That's awesome that you guys both do salsa. My wife has been dancing since she was 2 and competitively since she was 6. I've been white-boy dancing since I was old enough to sneak into bars, but I've taken some lessons and have learned some basic ballroom and salsa haha

I've been going to Cuba since the 80's and the cars there are unreal and I'm sure will fetch big dollars from collectors once they can be exported.

Crazy to see how well the people are doing now compared to the early 80's.

Unlikely they're worth much unfortunately. To keep them on the road and usable most have been gutted and all internals replaced with Toyota diesels and the like. Any value they might have had is reduced to whatever the shell is worth.

This was my first time there but I've heard even in the last decade the changes are drastic throughout the country. I can't even imagine the differences from the 80s! Would love to see pics if you have any
