Wonder if there are any cool Rovers in Cuba

With normalized relations that will change shipping routes on an inducement basis so shipping from Havana should be possible soon....

I can tell u from first hand there aren't many worthwhile there. A few old series being used in farms & for people transport.
However Cuba has these awesome soviet era defender equivalent called the "gua". It's like a 4 door military defender 90 soft top. Awesome looking. Always wanted but no money would let the govt let me take to the USA. Maybe now.
