The Geely: It's got cop tires, cop shocks ...

   Cuba's longtime state police car, the I-am-my-own-cellblock Lada, is gradually giving way to the Geely CK, according to this Reuters report. No doubt the Cuban constabulary welcomes the air-conditioning, power steering and other amenities of the Chinese-made Geely (a Daewoo design with 1.5-litre Toyota engine). Bet they don't mind its (semi) modern styling, either.
   But mark our words, officers. Just as your northern counterparts lament the loss of their foursquare Diplomats and Caprices, one day you'll admit how much you miss the sweet-and-simple Lada.
