Anyone with a passing interest in classic american cars should try and
catch a documentary called "<a
href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0312048/">Yank Tanks</a>".  A synopsis:

Yanks Tanks is a first look at the phenomenon of classic American cars
in Cuba. Like an exotic, endangered species, these colorful cars roam
around this island paradise trapped in a 1950's time warp. As beacons
of individuality in a sea of government conformity they represent
freedom for those who own them. Owners who will do almost anything to
keep them running. Seeing these old cars in recent films and
photographs one wonders how they have maintained them after decades
with no spare parts and an embargo by the United States. After
repeated trips to Cuba, the Schendel brothers succeed in taking a
close look into the underground world of Cuban cars, finding along the
way a gallery of eccentric characters - the curators of the largest,
living, automobile museum in the world.

I happened to just come across it while channel surfing last night.

Amazing!
