OMG! The Trabant is back!
Anyone who ever saw a Trabant will never forget its boxy austerity.
Anyone who ever covered more than 100 km in one without it breaking down has
probably thought about contacting the Guinness Book of Records. Reliability was
not its strong point.
However, the butt of Cold War-era jokes, the Trabant, was the unlikely star of
the Frankfurt motor show. I kid you not, and the story of how it got there is
even more fanciful than the 100 km non-stop.
