Daily Fix, 2


Russian cars have been the workhorses of the Cuban fleet for decades, and that long service – not their construction – is why you regularly see them undergoing roadside repairs. The Moskvich, above, however, is widely considered to be less reliable than its similarly shaped cousin, the Lada.


Cubans are adept at keeping their Ladas going. They've had years of practice.



Another Lada pit stop. Once fixed, this one, a top-of-the-line 2107, will be ready for a tank of leaded "Black Gold" gasoline.
