The Largest Living Car Vintage Museum
For 50 years Cuban were not allowed to buy or sell cars or houses. When the "Revolution Triumphed" whoever drove a car kept it and all rental properties were confiscated from the owners and given to the people who were renting them.
Generous ideas but these moves had two unwated consequences: Cuba became the biggest living car museum in the world and the houses suffered 50 years of neglect as the new owners could not afford to maintain them.
