That’s right Gill. The restrictions placed upon the Cubans have led to generations of high ingenuity people, who have a culture of fixing & mending rather than throw away & buy new. Its interesting that there has been a strong movement in Europe to fix/mend more to cut down on waste & landfill, so we could learn a lot from the Cubans. I’m full of admiration for their resilience & ingenious ways.

I thought this van had “old” written on the side but when I looked at the picture later I realise it said “Cold”. Could make the C out as it flashed by:

From July 2005’s Classic car and motorbike rally at Portsmouth. I think they run it or something similar most years:

A fair attempt to recreate a VW camper van by a riverside trader in Xiamen:

Brilliant concept!

Aside from the cost, you wonder why it never caught on, especially in cities where tight parking spaces are the norm.
