CARS OF CUBA by Cristina Garcia...

CARS OF CUBA by Cristina Garcia and Joshua Greene (Abrams: $14.95; 64 pp., paperback original). The impossibility of obtaining new vehicles during the U.S.-led economic embargo has turned Cuba into a living museum of American automobiles of the late ‘40s and ‘50s. Loved, polished, tinkered with and nurtured on the few liters of gasoline available under strict rationing, these cars remain a source of personal pride--and a monument to postwar Detroit design.
