This is one of the many classic American cars which fill Havana’s streets. Often fifty or sixty years old, it is impossible for their owners to obtain the parts to repair them and they often have tractor engines and are held together with bits of string. It is quite amazing how they keep going, but they do. This particular car is a Pontiac Chieftain; it did not keep going for long after I photographed it, but subsided with dignity into a heap of rust.
I have visited Cuba fifteen times and I never tire of using my camera to create striking images showing this time warp of a country and the life of its resourceful, determined and entirely delightful people.
