    Communism sucks and Castro's soon going to take Saddam's place in Satan's bed ala Southpark but just watched an interesting little video about cars in Cuba.

    It's some kind of Yahoo dealy and you can't directly link to it but go to:
    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070126/ap_on_re_eu/uranium_sting
    As of this evening it was a short way down on the left sidebar.


    Reminds me of the Harley clubs in Cuba. It's cool to see the love people put into their stuff even when living in a country that's crippled because of it's moronic leaders...crossing my fingers...

    Wonder if there's any Jeep or wheeling clubs down there?

    Jeep, jeep, GPW, Willys, whatever...I hate stereotypical Jeepers who think anything Jeep, especially their own, is the best and everything else sucks. The vehicles themselves can be pretty cool.

    One of my dreams is a "sleeper" WWII jeep. Keep it stock(ish) appearing on slightly bigger NDT tires, a 350 under the hood, Dana 44's, 2" long leaf lift...olive drab, white star on the hood, M1 Garand in the scabard and a .30 cal Browning M1919A4 machine gun on the pintle in the back.:cool1:



    At any rate you'd figure they'd have some old trucks sitting down there too if all these cars have been kept going. Some those Soviet era 4x4's aren't that bad either...if a bit reverse engineered.
