Audio slideshow: Classic cars in Gaza

Audio slideshow: Classic cars in Gaza

Gaza, like Cuba, is at the mercy of several trade blockades and a by-product of such a situation is the otherwise unusual proliferation of classic cars often being used as everyday vehicles. Here we have a pleasant little slide-show, courtesy of the BBC, which shows the heart-warming way in which these vehicles are kept on the road, the love and respect that can be engendered by looking after these old machines and the opportunities available to the young people of Gaza to learn an important and useful trade, whilst avoiding much of the pain and destruction that sadly blights the area. A truly fascinating and life-affirming article, showing an interesting aspect of Gaza life, a little bit of motoring trivia and perhaps most importantly a bit of hope for the future (with some help from the past!).
