Trinidad transportation, Pizza & Chevy - How American! One of many wonderful oldtimers (Chevrolet 1951?)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Trinidad, Cuba has wonderful collection of old American antique cars. Most of them are used as taxi. Many of these cars have been reworked parts, with non-standard parts and weird adds-on. Most of the hood ornaments are not original and even the car names tags are missing, so it is hard to determine, which year the car is from. The Swan hood ornament seems to come from 40's era Packard.

See the same car photographed in 2015 in my new gallery on 500px.

Egyik jellemző színfoltja Cubának az amerikai roncsautók hihetetlen kínálata.Mondhatjuk,,nem minden az,aminek látszik".A lényeg:induljon. L
