Havana is the best place of all to admire these classic automobiles. Star photographer Robert Polidori presents a brilliant photographic exhibition of these fascinating relics, some lovingly maintained, some in decay, which do so much to define the street scene of the Cuban capital. Music CD's: Accompanied by original Cuban music - including the stars from Buena Vista Social Club Company Segundo, and Omara Portuodo; The Book summons up mellow memories of glamorous days in old Havana.
