CNN laments the real tragedy taking place in Cuba

Sure, political arrests in Cuba are at a 30-year high and dissidents -- including handicapped individuals, women, and children -- are being brutally and indiscriminately beaten by Castro State Security. The apartheid Castro dictatorship not only continues its 55-year-long reign of terror over the Cuban people, but the repression has been increasing steadily over the past few years.

iReporter TwoLens sent us some of his photos of these classic cars, from a trip last year.
