ON THE ROAD AGAIN: Cubans sail a modified 1959 Buick across
the Florida Straits on Tuesday. Two passengers tried to make the
trip last summer in a Chevy pickup. CBS4        

Two Cuban men, both of them desperate fathers and childhood
friends, plotted to make a vintage vehicle seaworthy and took to
the Florida Straits this week, relatives said.

Tuesday, a floating Eisenhower-era automobile spotted chugging
toward U.S. soil carried Marciel Basanta López and Luis Gras
Rodríguez, relatives said -- two of the men whose ill-fated attempt
to escape Cuba aboard a Chevy pickup in July garnered
international headlines and a swift repatriation to the communist
island. Seven months later, the men -- plus nine others, including
their wives and children -- slipped once more from the shores of
their homeland in hopes of freedom, said Basanta's cousin, Kiriat
López, who lives in Lake Worth.
