    • Synopsis
    • Of the many mysteries swirling around Cuba, there’s one that has captured the imagination of cubaphiles, auto-enthusiasts, and dreamers:
      What happened to Ernest Hemingway’s car?
      Exactly fifty years after the Nobel-prize-winning author departed Cuba - his home for 22 years - his long-lost 1955 Chrysler New Yorker convertible has finally been found, derelict and near to ruin.
      Cuba’s vast repository of classic American
      automobiles is synonymous with the surreal and sensual nation, and Hemingway’s much sought-after vehicle is potentially the most valuable and important of them all.
      The story is a fascinating insight into
      contemporary Cuba - an irresistible yet
      much-misunderstood Communist island of
      eccentricity, eroticism, and enigma, in which Hemingway is considered a national treasure and baseball is the national sport… serving alongside the beloved Detroit classics - from creaky Cadillac taxis to Chevrolet Impalas
      with fins sharp enough to draw blood - as
      ambassadors of an abiding affection that still binds the two nations together.
