Herbie Meets Trabi

We just bought another cult car! It is a “Trabant 601S de Luxe” manufactured in former East Germany before the Iron Curtain came down. Even though, the “Time” magazine rated the so-called “Trabi” as one of the 50 worst cars ever made, Domi loves to drive it – and it has an air-cooled two-stroke powered engine with 26 horsepower and 600 cc. The “Trabi” will be our daily driver, while Herbie goes around the world.

    1) “Very beautiful!!!!”

    2) ” It (Trabant) deserves a new version”
