Here we go, compañeros y compañeras….ladies and gentlemen….
The “normalization” circus proudly rolls out some very serious entertainment for American and Lateeeeeeeen-oh audiences, perhaps one of the most important shows ever aired on television anywhere.
Yes, it’s a whole show filmed in the Castro Kingdom, hosted by Cuban-American actor and ex-model William Levy, and the subject is old American cars.
Yes, cars! You know, nothing typifies Cuba and its so-called Revolution more intensely than an antique American car.
Not even Smokin’ Graciela can compete with these beauties saved from the scrap heap by noble savages who live in a communist paradise.
What’s next on the Discovery Channel, now that they’ve covered Cuban sharks and Cuban cars? The Smokin’ Graciela reality show, of course.
Watch out Kardashians! Graciela and her two sisters, who live in a church rectory with their jovial uncle, Monsignor Fidel, are sure to steal your audience.
Fasten your seat belts and make sure those barf bags are near at hand.

“Cuban Chrome” is the “first American television series produced entirely on location in Cuba” and will be also be broadcast on July 13 in English by the Discovery Channel.
“Today, thousands of classic American cars can be found in Cuba, each of them with a unique story to tell,” such as the difficulty in obtaining spare parts for these autos.
One of the parts of the series deals with the world of the passionate mechanics, restoration experts and vintage car owners who meet at the “A Lo Cubano Car Club,” an establishment where they share their experiences.
Produced by Pilgrims Studios, the series is a chronicle of the day-to-day activities of several members of the club, exploring the “challenges and joys of life in Cuba, presenting an authentic look into their culture of passion, grit, determination and ingenuity.”
