Repairing an old Chevrolet in Havana. Under the Revolutionary government, Cubans are not able to purchase new vehicles, but they take amazing care of those they do have. As can be imagined, finding parts to repair an American made Chevrolet is nearly impossible and as a result, looking under the hood of an old Chevrolet resembles more a Russian automobile and makeshift weldings than anything near to its American brand name. Currently the Cuban government is implementing a program where owners of antiques like this can exchange them for a new Honda. The government sells the antique car to a collector abroad and the Cuban seller gets a brand new car that makes great gas mileage and actually runs 40 miles without breaking down.
