Thanks Bart Most of the cars have an other engine ,, a china made 5 cilinder diesel engine,, and cuba does have oilfields but only to use for ther power/boilerhouses , not for the cars ,, the imported the fuel from Venezuela as an exchange for Venezuelan students who can study cheaply on CubaBeautiful image, Wim!
It's like looking back in time.
It always puzzled me how these cars are still operational after all those years.
And how they can afford to use them with the exorbitant consumption of fuel cars from that era needed.
Cuba doesn't have oilfields of its own, I think.
I was there in 2017 and toured in one of the classic cars. Our tour guide was a college professor and she said she made more money with the tours than she did teaching.Eventually ended up using an illegal driver named "Dr. Carlos", he made more money as a driver than as a Doctor. Beautiful people and a beautiful country
