At present, it will cost you at least 25 CUCs to spend an hour in the company of one of these 1950s supermodels. It's difficult to begrudge the money. Cubans have kept all of these 1950s cars on the road with what little money they had and a vast investment of energy, ingenuity and sheer determination when parts - any parts, let alone the right ones - were virtually impossible to find.
There are cheaper ways to cruise the Malecon: in the open-topped red tourist bus, in a 1950s 'ordinary' taxi, either shared or as a private hire, in a cocotaxi, on a bicitaxi, or, - always a great option -, on your own two feet. Then you can stop and look at everything you fancy.
