Description - Cars in Cuba You Should See Before You Die by Kim Buddee

Visitors to Cuba are enchanted by the music, the cigars and rum but above all they love those iconic classic American cars thundering along the crumbling streets of Havana and over the dusty bumpy roads of the island. In the first half of the 20th century Cuba was one of the greatest importers of American cars and by 1955 they numbered over one hundred and fifty five thousand. Kim Buddee's affectionate tribute to this Jurassic Park of motor vehicles captures the wide range of imports from pre WW2 through the glory days of the 1950s. Away from the motor museums and collectors' Concourses, here these classic vehicles appear warts an' all, strung together with duct tape and wire, hybrid models with odd hood ornaments and hand painted panels, some in motion and some broken down.

Author Biography - Kim Buddee

In early 2012, Kim Buddee travelled to Myanmar to photograph the capital Yangon before the impact of the 'Burmese spring' would see this historic city and its people changed forever. The result was his book Once Was Burma. In 2015 and 2016 Kim went to Cuba, gathering material for his forthcoming book The Cuban Evolution, which captures Cuban culture, architecture, people and the history on the brink of a new era. Kim was originally an architect, grew up in Perth, WA and significantly, his father drove a green 1953 Ford Customline.
