A man works at restoring a French-made 1957 Simca Aronde on a street in Havana February 1, 2012. For the first time since the 1959 revolution, Cubans now have the right to buy and sell cars in a much-anticipated reform under President Raul Castro, another step toward greater economic freedom on the communist-led island. Cubans and foreign residents would now be able to do with their cars what they wanted "without any prior authorization from any entity."
