Cubans Try to Float Buick to Freedom

(news from his way, her way, My Way)

9 Cubans were intercepted attempting to cross over to the USA in a 1959 Buick which had been converted into a pontoon boat. So yes, you can now truly say that old Buicks are boats. 🙂 The Cubans will be sent back to Cuba, as they did not reach US shores. This same group of Cubans attempted to float a 51 Chevy pickup over last July, but were intercepted.

Now, I might be way off base, but if youre living in Cuba, and you can afford not one but 2 vehicles (broken or otherwise), and you’re smart enough to convert them into boats, then you probably aren’t too bad off in Cuba.
