  • How interesting... (a photo)

    Below is a photo and caption that popped up on 'My Yahoo' page this afternoon:



    "This 02 June 1959 file photo shows Argentine-born Cuban revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara (R) at the wheel of a US-made car with his second wife Aleida March (L) on their wedding day in Havana a few months after he helped Fidel Castro overthrow the regime of dictator Fulgencio Bartista. A book on Guevara's home life written by his widow will be published in Cuba in March 2008, Cuban publishing officials said Thursday. (AFP/ARCHIVO FAMILIAR)"

    What do you think the odds are that this car is still on the island, and in running/driving condition [?] [?] [?]

    VERY high, Dave! Out of necessity, the Cubans learned to very resourceful since 1959. If you look at your September TW, it could very well be the one on page 33[:0]

        Isn't it just like Che, to bring a couple of comrades along for the honeymoon? What a guy!

        And, yes, I would bet that Lark is still cruising the streets of Havanna.

                I was looking through a book about cars in Cuba a few years ago and it showed a black Lark on the streets of Havana. Could have been the same car. I should have bought the book.
