Two years ago, noted automotive photographer Piotr Degler was inspired by the 1978 photo of a mustard yellow Mercedes-Benz 300 SL in Cuba, inspired enough to travel to the island in search of the most interesting cars... A selection of 222 full color images from over 25.000 done during his trip on the Island, makes this book the most extensive look at the country's car culture. Printed in Italy on premium materials, this bilingual book with 304 pages is divided in three sections: INTRODUCTION (A short general view of Cuba - not car related), ON THE ROAD (Classic cars which are used daily) and RUST IN PEACE (hidden treasures and abandoned cars such as a Mercedes Gullwing, 300SL Roadster, Hispano Suiza, Porsche...) "Speaking of Cuba is talking about their cars. When in 1959 a young Castro decreed a law to prevent the importation of cars, he could not see the great favor that made us all who are passionate about the 4 wheels. Unwittingly, he bequeathed us a full pre-revolutionary treasure, which now constitutes one of the tourist attractions of the island. For 10 years I had been dreaming of visiting this photographic paradise. It was something I felt inside me. 10 years longing to capture the country through its almendrones (vintage taxis), Buicks, Cadillacs and Studebakers... 10 years were expectation was mixed with desire. I had an intense month to find my treasure. Chasing rumors and opinions, I traveled the island from Viñales to Santiago de Cuba, stopping in dozens of towns and cities. As I forged friendships with enthusiasts and local mechanics, I opened doors normally closed to foreign tourists. Beyond the American classics, Cuba has put me face to face with some of the most iconic cars of Automobile History. A project that documents with the best pictures my dream, a dream that I invite you to discover."
