Cars in Cuba

By Kim Bud­dee

Vacations & Travel - - Armchair -

A cel­e­bra­tion of Cuba’s iconic vin­tage cars, this hard­back cof­fee-table style book is jam-packed with stun­ning, vivid pho­tog­ra­phy. These Amer­i­can cars are a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the Caribbean is­land’s colour­ful her­itage and decades of iso­la­tion, and this book fea­tures them in all their glory. From the out­landish to the beau­ti­ful, from pre-World War II to the 1950s, all have been care­fully re­stored with in­cred­i­ble me­chan­i­cal in­ge­nu­ity. The book also touches on how Cuba was one of the great­est im­porters of Amer­i­can cars and how Cubans were forced to be in­no­va­tive with their limited re­sources. New Hol­land Pub­lish­ers, RRP: $45
