Every TV news piece on Cuba shows an old US car.
Good for the US car, shame on the US.

Yeah, nothing like a nice old piece of iron hacked all to hell.

I keep seeing the 57 (or whatever year it was) Chevy (or whatever make it was) with the engine bay Sawz-All'ed all to hell running a Nissan diesel engine...

I like this because it's subtle, not real flashy.

That's a big ole ride!

Yes, same chassis as the big old touring car, 118" wheelbase I think.

They soon replaced the Cambridge windshield with one you could see out of.

To finish out the week here we have a pair of unique images of high-performance early automobiles parked on a street in different locations. The lead photo contains an impressive American Underslung “Traveler” on the left and a large and powerful Thomas-Flyer “6-70” roadster or “speedster” parked out in front of the Upham Gas Co. Both of the vehicles were owned by family members who owned and operated the Company.

The American appears to be as delivered when new, although the “6-70” Thomas looks like a “Hell Bent for Leather” semi-stripped down high-speed road car. It is equipped with a Cambridge windshield, and side curtains to keep the blast of cold winter of air off of both the driver and passenger at speed. A bearskin coat and hat, along with a face mask, goggles and heavy gloves were also necessary to keep the occupants from turning into a block of ice while underway.

I think this would have been kind of cool...

Diaphone Jim 06-30-2019 12:34 PM

Had me goin' there.
The Caribbean was my favorite car when I was 13, but I never saw anything but a convertible.
This pic is a "concept" and fooled me. You are right , it "would" have been cool.
There was a hardtop in the last year of production, 1956.
It also started a discussion that continues still: Is it care-eh-BE-an or ca-RIB-ee-an?
I think it is the first one.

xoxoxoBruce 06-30-2019 04:55 PM

Agreed, never heard the second one before I was married.
