Trabi Wo.....

By DicksPics
A series of images taken outside the Trabant Museum whilst in Berlin last May with Silly Sunday in mind.

Many of these much maligned Trabants, which were a product of the old East Germany, are still alive and kicking and very popular with tourists who feel the need to embark upon a Trabi Safari around the streets of Berlin.

The final version collage is a series of images of one of these 'Safaris' - many apologies for the poor quality of the grab shots which were taken without notice of the event unfolding before me! I thought I'd include them just for the record!!

Many thanks for all votes and comments on my 'Shutters, Flyscreens and Shadows' upload and, especially, to Jeff(kojack), Peter(Mollycat), Oliver(bliba), Savvas, Ray(ThePixelator), Patty(pentaxpatty) and Dimitris(dimelexa) for their treasured User Awards.SmileSmile

I hope you have a lovely Sunday.

A lovely memory lane for me , Richard ! - In my old hometown Pori in western Finland we had 4 or 5 Trabants in the sixties . My friends father sold them then , but it was not a very popular car. For instance the brakes were mechanical and not very good indeed . Luckily the speed of the car was not very great either - But very good there are some of them left.SmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmile - Jukka.

Oh so right for Silly Sunday Richard Grin

Vorsprung passed them by.
Produced in the old NSU Motors factories while their opposite number in the west went from strength to strength.

There was interest in them in 1989 when the wall came down. I think they even got a mention on Top Gear (clearly not for their performance).

Wonderful, Trabi World. A theme park where they didn't have to
build any scary rides. They just had to put petrol in them SmileSmileSmile
Nice work Richard.

Terrific set of photos, I understand it the Trabant was right up there, (or is it down there) with that other legendary auto, the Yugo

A bit late here, but we really need to go back to Berlin...
I could quote a whole string of Trabi jokes. Suffice to say that I have a remote control battery-powered model. Which is probably more reliable than the original...
