You Kanot hab a Kar Sow Mitout Der Trabi! Here is vun uf mine Trabant Cars to show! This Trabant was found and came to me after a bunch of school kids were turned loose with paint, brushes, glue and a box full of buttons, small toy figures and beads. They were told to make it an art car…. This is how I got it! What can I say? Trabants are 2 cycle, smoke spewing relics of the Cold War Era. Designed to be built very cheap, but sturdy enough for the poor roads of East Germany during the communist occupation. A couple MILLION Trabis ran all over eastern Europe blowing out smoky exhaust. Folks say all the BLACK COATED buildings are a result of Trabant exhaust! With body panels made out of cotton and paper called Duraplast, they don’t rust, but they do have a thin metal framework with these panels attached by rivets. People said, If Two Trabants crash, no need for a tow truck, only a broom and dustpan! FYI- I have NO CLUE how to post an entry!
