Yank Tank in Cuba
Yank tank or maquina are slang terms used for describing classic cars like 1953 Ford, 1958 Dodge, Chevrolet and the likes in Cuba. Cuba is famous worldwide for its exquisite collection of memorable American cars. Most of these beauties are still in use today and are driven by their owners. A United States embargo against Cuba was started in 1962; this restriction reduced trade between these two countries. Because of this ban on trade, new cars could not be bought nor could people in Cuba get hold of new car parts. Hence, inhabitants of Cuba have tried to keep their old cars in good shape.
