I thought this photo gallery might be amusing to our friend Celeon. My ISP's website has a feature today on the Trabant and a twelve page photo gallery. For those not interested in the car, the leggy blonde on page one might provide some distraction. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

Once you've listened to that 2 stroke engine sound and felt those vibrations in its idle mode you will never forget it in your entire life. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Last time i was sitting in one of them..... man that must be 22 years or so.

There are two of them left in Celeon's post socialist neighbourhood and the owners care for them like if they were their own children or something. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
