Photographer's Note

Cuba is well known for a few things: Cigars, Che, and Old Chevys. They are not just a tourist gimmick used to shuttle travelers around, but rather daily use cars for normal families. All around Cuba, you can see young and old car enthusiasts washing and babying their classic Chevys.

Most of these cars are older than the driver, dating back to the early 1950s. Ask any owner and they will gladly open their hood to show you the original parts and upholstery. Who says American cars aren't build to last? ;)
