Just returned from Cuba, having attended our daughter's wedding on the beach at Varadero. The day after the big event, we took a guided tour into Havana, and just had to share one of our "sightings" with forum readers.

Along with the '50s and '60s era old cars still on the streets of this magnificent city, we spotted one of their unique little taxi cabs . . . a molded fibreglas 3-wheeled creation with a motorcycle-derived engine. The drivers were young women and you couldn't helped but notice them as they whizzed in and out of the congested traffic.

For all the world, they remind you of a football helmet on wheels!

With a few mods, one could have the ultimate compact, molded fibreglas RV . . . don't ya think!

Think of the gas mileage!

Very cool!

I'd love to visit Cuba. I'd really like to do some hiking in the mountains there.

It looks like the egg should be pulling this along as a dinghy!

In the 1950s in Atlantic City NJ there were vehicles called "jitneys" that looked like that, without the colors.

There is a gentleman in Louisville, KY who has customized a VW bug/motorcycle hybrid that looks very similar to these. The body part is part VW bug. There is only one seat across the back and the driver sits there and steers with a steering wheel and stick shifter. Wish I had a picture.
