Fidel Castro is 90. This bus is not much younger

Public transportation in Santiago de Cuba.
   IN A LETTER released on his 90th birthday this past Saturday, Fidel Castro paid tribute to the advances that let him continue to contemplate the ways of the world ... and beyond.
   "Modern medical techniques have allowed me to scrutinize the universe," he wrote.
   For passengers on this 1958 Mercury truck converted into a people-carrier in Santiago, the view is less extensive.

Rebadged Ford pickups and medium-duty trucks were sold as
Mercurys in Canada 
 and also shipped to Cuba.
