Sneak Peek of Havana Taxi Co.

My latest taxi adventure was in Havana Cuba, where there are thousands of American cars of the 1950's: Chevys, Buicks, Fords and Plymouths...  Most of them working as taxis.  Before the Cuban revolution the Cuban middle class had a passion for American cars but after the Communist Party gained control 1959 and US embargo was imposed 1960 new American cars have been off limits.  For the last 55 years people have been pulling components from old cars and creating custom parts to keep their automobiles on the road.  More images to come soon.  Meanwhile check out my previous Taxi rides in Mumbai India. http://markkuphoto.com/mumbai-taxi/
