Self explanatory and really one of the last from Cuba.
Thanks for your response to A fleeting smile. I wasn't sure about it, but it seemed to have gone down well.

Somebody has lavished care and attention and hours of TLC to this old American car, I'd bet there are few looking this good in the US of A.

Lovely work Ann, you seem to have added something to this and it works so very well whatever it is.

There is some superb 1950s colour on show here, Ann, although the car has been tarted up with some 1990s (?) wheels and those amazing spot lights. How could you possibly avoid such vehicles? I would have a field day!
I reckon the car has had more tlc recently than the buildings.
Lovely work.
Regards
Bill

Ann, this is wonderful. The juxtaposition of the perfect, shinny paint job against the muted adobe facades is so interesting to see.

It's fascinating to see the contrast between the obviously lovingly-cared-for car and the rather decrepit building behind it.

a fine picture of a very well preserved Dodge Coronet late 50s methinks.
I agree with the above, the wheels are wrong but what can they do in cuba!
