This hot little number didn't even make our list. But you could buy it from Maykel for about $7,000.
In this week's feature story, you can read all about Revolico. The website -- a Craigslist for Cuba -- is changing the way Cubans do business in the Caribbean communist stronghold by bringing the nation's rampant black market online for the world to see.

Cuba's socialist constitution forbids pretty much all private enterprise, but you can find anything and everything for sale on Revolico: computers, DVDs, diapers, Chinese lessons, massages, bikes, tennis shoes. It's a capitalist Valhalla and an obvious crack in Fidel Castro's grip.

It's also a great place to see some ridiculous rides. In Cuba, with a few exceptions, only cars made before 1960 are allowed. The island is choked with barely running "Yank tanks" -- and a bunch are for sale on Revolico.

Riptide has combed through Revolico for the sweetest of the sweet cars for sale. Click through for our Top 10.

What's hotter than a 1950 Renault? A lime-muthafuckin'-green 1950 Renault.


9. 1958 Ford Prefect, 7,500 pesos

In case the ladies aren't swooning for the crayoned-on blue finish, the soccer scarf should seal the deal.


8. 1951 Ford pickup, 15,000 pesos

By rule of law, you must dress like a character in O Brother Where Art Thou? while driving this pickup.

No, no, that's not rust. It's uh, character. Yeah, character!

These cars are really awesome and wonderful, I like every car as every car have its own features. Attractive color and structure as people in ancient time have, but I am impressed with these cars.

In 1950, Chevrolet came up with a revolutionary style that would set a pattern for decades. The Bel Air Hardtop (on the DeLuxe line) was styled as a convertible with a non-detachable solid roof. Models like this had been around since the 1920s, including early Chevrolets, with no degree of success. But the newly revised idea, sweeping the GM line from Chevrolet to Cadillac, had finally found its era.

Just back from Cuba, these cars are great but....... most have small diesel engines not neccessaraly Russian, there are Pergeot, Perkins, some from China and South America. Many are from Canada. 0 - 60mph approx 10 mins but they do get there.

Cuba looks like a beautiful place to visit. Why leave?

That's a great point, Alex. We didn't want to clutter up our story by getting into Cuba's dual-currency economy, but all postings are listed in CUC pesos. These old Yank Tanks don't come cheap!

Tim, you should point out that the prices are in CUC pesos, which are valued at $1.20 US dollars inside Cuba (including 10% tax). So they are asking $18K for that Ford pickup!
