Au programme

We will meet at 10am at Daisy's Café in Havana at Santa Catalina 610 and Mayia Rodriguez in the "10 de Octubre" neighborhood. Introductions all-around by me, your host and welcome beverage will be offered.
-Tour will be conducted in a American classic like a 1949 Chevrolet Deluxe or 1957 Ford Fairlane, always with original engine.

Experience will then continue to various repair shops around Havana where you will see what goes into keeping these classics on the road, and you will interact with shop owners and workers directly;
1.MECHANIC'S SHOP; visit a mechanics shop near the meeting point and see why the mechanics in Cuba are considered magicians for their ability to keep eighty-year old cars running without original parts.
2.LEAF SPRING & COIL SPRING RESTORATION SHOP; these shops are critical for classic American cars in Cuba, where roads are in bad shape. Old leaf springs are brought back to life with heat and muscle power using spring shackles and U-bolts that are hand-made in Havana.
4.BODY WORK RESTORATION; see how Cuban body-work "artists" recreate quarter panels and rocker panels by hand.
5.PAINT SHOP; where American classics get their shine back

I am a native Floridian and have also resided in Louisiana and New York. I have been traveling to Cuba for over ten years, and living there for the last four years. I have been working on cars since I was thirteen, and have restored two Chevrolet trucks and a Ford Mustang. I am currently restoring a 1949 Chevrolet Deluxe and 1954 Chevrolet 210 in Havana, and have been immersed in Cuban car culture for the past four years. To restore a classic American cars in Cuba requires access to very specialized mechanics and craftsmen who I have been working with for the past four years.

This was really great! Loved seeing how these genius guys keep stuff running. Frank knows his cars and is a cool/non-cheesy tour guide. Also nice being in the country a bit.. cruising the outskirts. Ideal quantity of food and coffee too!

Frank’s tour is a once in a lifetime experience. If you are into classic cars don’t miss this chance to meet the guys that are keeping the antique cars running. Lunch was terrific in the middle of farm land at a local restaurant.

A very informative and interesting day. Frank has developed a considerable network of experts working in less than ideal conditions, keeping Havana's classics on the road. Frank is a wealth of knowledge on life in Havana and Cuba, as a local and as an ex patriot. Enjoyed seeing and hearing the reality of life here.

Good experience for the car enthusiast. Frank is an excellent host who has a lot of inside knowledge of how things work in Cuba. Met with people on the ground in the industry and got the inside story of the day to day challenges of keeping a car running in Havana. Frank showed me around in an old Chevy sedan which was great. lots of coffee and beers provided and also an nice lunch of my choice. Definitely recommended for anyone with an interest in cars.
