Trabant


This former Eastern German car is called Trabant. Weeks ago I seen a Trabant on Philipp's Berlin Daily Photo site and I decided to post a similar one. My first car was a Trabant, too. I got it as a present from my grandpa after I graduated successfully in the highschool. But my grandpa was a very funny guy and he asked the mechanics to add some red color to the originally white car. Guess what was the result? ..............................yes, my first car was a pink Trabant:)

I don't think I've seen this model except in photos, but I imagine a pink one is kind of cool

Hmmm I have never seen this car before. They do not sell them in this part of the world...

But it's interesting.

omg. This girl's heart could have been won with a pink Trabant.

Trabant are very rarely seen in Finland nowadays, maybe even at 80's it was a bit more common choice.

I think a saw one parked in a house yard nearhood, gotta sneak out to take a photo..
