Story highlightsThe Cuban government enacted a law in late 2013 that made buying a new car easierSome fear the demise of Cuba’s famous classic American car culture is imminentThawing relations with the United States could mean more changes for Cuba’s car culture (CNN)With U.S. President Barack Obama announcing a historic overhaul in relations between the United States and Cuba, the largest island in the Caribbean stands on the precipice of dramatic change.One casualty of change could be the classic American cars — many still in everyday use — that have long been a point of interest for international visitors. In late 2013, Cuba eased restrictions on car imports and acquisitions in the country, doing away with a law that made icons of its old American Pontiacs and Chevys. Though newer cars remain prohibitively expensive for most locals, the easing of the law and thawing relations with the United States could spell the beginning of the end for these vehicular stalwarts. Earlier this year we asked iReporters to submit images of the country’s beautiful vintage U.S. cars — some of the best can be seen in the gallery above.

Beautiful Classic Cars

Cars evoke a variety of emotions, draw in a multitude of people for varying reasons, and are built for a bevy of different reasons. Some are purely purpose-built, whether that's for carrying eight people, two dogs, a birdcage and lacrosse equipment or for beating the fastest track lap record at the 'gring. Some are made to represent a specific class level, showing the world that you have obnoxious amounts of money and that you can afford to put it into cars with built-in umbrellas in the doors. And then there are the cars that (yes, we're copying A Christmas Story) are made with full intention of being four-wheeled, internal combustion-engined, steel-sculpted SEX. Pure. Unadulterated. Sexy. Sex.

Among the first sports cars of the post-war era, the Mercedes SL 300 Gullwing was the fastest production car of its time when it was introduced in 1954. As the first direct fuel injection series production car, the SL 300 could travel at an eye-popping 160 miles per hour. “Nobody expected something like that from Mercedes,” says Constantin von Kageneck, a specialist in classic car marketing at the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center in Irvine, CA. Though about three-quarters of the original SL 300’s survive today, many still belong to their original owners. To see one, visit the Classic Center or an automotive museum like the Petersen in Los Angeles.

1 Of 100 100. Jaguar XJS (1975–1996)The successor to the iconic E-Type, the XJS was a great-looking car in its own right.

Once called “the most beautiful car ever made” by Enzo Ferrari, the 1960s Jaguar E-Type is a classic sports car mainstay. “If you only choose one car from this list to drive, this is the one,” says McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty, the world’s largest provider of collector vehicle insurance. This staple of British motoring history still has verve–it can perform up to 150 m.p.h. and brakes better than most cars from its era. Visit the Jaguar Heritage Driving Experience program in Kenilworth, U.K., where you can pay for a day of driving the marque’s classics.

Considered by some to be the sexiest car ever built, the Miura debuted in 1966 as a sleek mid-engine speedster designed to challenge Ferrari. “Piloting the Miura transcends driving experience to become a life experience,” Hagerty says. “If the sound of six carburetors feeding a thirsty, vibrating V-12 moored right behind your head isn’t enough, it’s also arguably the most beautiful car ever produced.” To buy one, contact the Lamborghini Club America or an auction house like RM Sotheby’s or Gooding & Co. They’re usually in the know about the cars before they reach the general market.

The emblem of Big Three muscle cars, the Chevy Corvette is the most collected vehicle in America. The second generation, which spanned 1963 to 1967, is “the most iconic American car ever made,” says Keith Martin, publisher of Sports Car Market. “It’s still breathtaking and fresh today.” Early generation Corvettes remain plentiful in the U.S., so you can scour auctions, collector car dealers, and websites like classiccars.com for deals.
