Memory Lane of Havana, Cuba -  (Written by David Netzer)

“I had the opportunity to visit Cuba this year, and for the week I was there, I felt like I had taken a trip back in time. The vintage cars are a delight and they are seemingly everywhere. Many are used as private taxis or utilized by hotels to transport their guests in style. It was a thrill to be driven out to Hemingway’s House from Havana in one of these vintage convertibles. It brought back wonderful memories of these cars from my childhood.”
