Documentary, Auto, Reality
"Cuban Chrome" is the first American TV production to be filmed entirely on location in Cuba. The docuseries explores a fascinating time warp that characterizes Cuban car culture, dating to the U.S.-imposed embargo in 1960 that prohibited all American exports to the island nation except for food and medicine. As a result, thousands of vintage American vehicles can be found in Cuba, and they represent much more than just a means of transportation. The series chronicles how the A Lo Cubano Car Club -- passionate car enthusiasts, restorers, mechanics and apprentices -- go to extremes to preserve the treasured cars for future generations, and maintain the ones they already own and depend upon.
