Yes, I enjoyed that article, too, Steve – and some really beautiful models.

I thought this was an interesting article about how this “Silver” spends his time https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-business-47357827

Some lovely classic car shots too

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.

Me, too Steve @coolonespa – I loved the way they kept things going a la Blue Peter, with sticky back plastic
and elastic bands, etc.!

As I mentioned Cuba on another thread, lets have a classic car from Havana:

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:
