This country has over 60000 fully operational vintage cars

Called Yank Tanks, the many vintage cars driving on the roads of Cuba are the result of a trade embargo placed by the United States in 1962.  Unable to buy new cars, Cubans have resourcefully maintained these vintage cars with repurposed household products.  The landscape of Havana is dotted with brightly colored cars, most of which are out of production in the US.  For those travelers seeking a bit of nostalgia peppered into their vacation, Cuba would be a great choice.
