In Cuba, old American classic cars built before 1959 are referred to as máquinas. Many are used for communal taxis which run specific routes, picking up and dropping off passengers along the way. Sometimes called colectivos,  for locals they are an inexpensive way to travel. They are a common site throughout Cuba and most will have a yellow or green “taxi” sign on the windshield or on the roof.  Potential rides wait on street corners or along highways.
