This generously illustrated report of a working visit to Havana in 1992 elaborates on the history and problematic situation of Cuba after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Special attention is paid to the many American passenger cars that remained on the island, after Cuban dictator Batista fled to the Dominican Republic on New Year's Eve 1958 and Fidel Castro nationalized foreign companies. Despite their age and the problem of getting replacement parts, all those models from Chevrolet, Pontiac, Cadillac, Ford, Mercury, Plymouth, Dodge, Chrysler, Studebaker and Rambler were still in use and that made Havana a moving museum that is unique in the world.
