Advertised as the first American television series to be produced entirely on location in Cuba, Cuban Chrome will premiere on July 13th, one week from today at 10 pm ET/PT on the Discovery Channel! This groundbreaking new docu-series explores the interesting time warp that characterizes Cuban culture.
Since the 1959 Cuban Revolution and the subsequent U.S. embargo, it has been illegal to import American cars to the island nation of Cuba. Because of this dilemma, Cubans must maintain their 50+ year old, vintage American vehicles, not just as a means of transportation, but a way of life. The new docu-series Cuban Chrome will give viewers an intimate look into this once ritzy, but now rarely seen country, as they meet men and women who put everything on the line to keep these classic cars running.
