Hi Bud,
You'll love Cuba. I was there in 2016 and it was really interesting. But I only 
saw 1 British car, a newer Land rover, if I remember correctly. I don't know 
how you are planning on getting there, we went on a "mission" of course as the 
US still had pretty strict requirements for visas. We flew on a charter from 
Miami and if you are planning a similar route, be warned the luggage weight 
requirements are pretty strict, we would never have been able to get heavy 
front end parts there. You may also have trouble getting them through customs, 
but I don't know too much about that.
Have fun,

I have an opportunity to go to Cuba in the near future and have researched the 
British Car scene there and next to the Cadillacs and Buick Roadmasters left 
behind by the Mafia in 1959, and a bunch of Chevys, there are a few British 
Sports Cars in Cuba. They donâ??t get the inflow of British parts that the 
American parts get so Iâ??m thinking of taking a few interchangeable parts 
amongst British cars such as tie rods, bearings, etc. that they might make use 
of (along with some new baseballs for the kids). 

I know they are very creative in making those cars still run but I thought a 
few harder to get parts, that you just canâ??t take off the washing machine, 
might be nice. 

Iâ??ve heard suspension/steering parts are sought after due to the potholes 
ever present. So I have some Spitfire tie rods that might also fit MGs and some 
other such parts that might be interchangeable.

Any thoughts or suggestions? Maybe U-joints? I do have to take clothes so 
nothing too heavy please.
