Your in Cuba and car's been there all those years, no way Never saw so many restored old vehicles or just in original condition that look new as there. Spent 6 weeks at Gitmo early 60's on shakedown cruise (Navy/rehabbed Tin Can) but not much sightseeing in those times.

I'd really like to see the 2 countries get closer, very interesting continent. We have a Havanese (sp.?) pup no less. Hope to follow your project more.

Roger that on the country home, must be a great getaway, change of pace. Being up in ME know a few people with camps in Canada, Cuba must be unbelievable.

Definitely the Special needs a 350. Wouldn't know where to start and surprised a few of the experts haven't answered as yet (not me), still may hear something though. Do know from my C4 Corvette shouldn't buy a bunch of stuff and stockpile as you can change your mind many times over with direction going

Love those things, one of the main reasons I am planning a trip for later this year! I want to go before it gets too touristy.
