 www.cuba.cu/turismo/panatrans/. Havana-based Grancar is inviting tourists to take a journey through Cuba's automotive yesteryear, using cars which have been around since Cuba's heydays. Grancar, has some 65 restored American vehicles, most dating back to the 1950s and featuring the fins and whitewall tires reminiscent of that era. They have become somewhat symbolic of Havana where it's not difficult to find older American vehicles, and where it's virtually traditional to preserve them.

Perez Rodriguez from Grancar says clients can "rent a fantasy" from Ford, Desoto, Chevrolet, Buick, Mercury, Dodge, and Pontiac and a choice of either convertible or hardtops in a rainbow of colours, with an eye-catching neon-green Mercury being one option or a black 1956 Cadillac for the luxury-minded tourist. Although most Grancar vehicles are around the half-century mark, some are older, with a 1928 Ford making even most Grancar vehicles seem somewhat youthful.

Clients can take tours ranging from an hour to several days, and those clients who can't drive "old-timers" because they weren't around in the days of American Graffiti and the age of the vehicles means they aren't familiar with their operation, can be chauffeured around in their choice of car.
