    And in one fell swoop, they had it. The American car manufacturers figured that the car-boat needed to come back into play, as clearly a market needed serving. Now, how to export them into Cuba.

    * The Cuban Navy, suffering from a serious underfunding problem, has been forced to get ummmm creative.

  6. Bithead says:

    What the picture doesn’t show is they were pulling a 20ft boat and trailer.

    *Another attempt at Carboat diplomacy

    The CIA would take it in the britches for not discovering Cuba’s ultra-secret development of the boa-limo, which was to of revitalized it’s non-existant automotive industry and rivaled GM’s for the ultra-high-end limo+boat class of vehicles that will eventually replace SUV’s on American roads, lakes, and rivers.
