  2. I have received a lot of messages asking about the future of the forums once my car sells. Well today it sold and will soon be on its way to its new home. With that said, for the forums, there is more information under 'Announcements" titled "Future of the Forums' you could also copy and paste this link: http://www.trabantforums.com/threads/future-of-the-forums-donations.1762/

    Snuffly the Trabant was imported from Hungary in 2015, and braved the trip across from Lancashire to the north-east of England. He enjoys drives into town, and needs a bit of work on his tired interior.

    So far, he's had he following done:
    • New v-belt
    • New ignition coils, leads and plugs
    • New shoes, cylinders and drum brake lines all round
    • New door handle (driver's side was falling off, unlockable)
    • A decadent west German Blaupunkt radio, which needs removing
    He has around ~57,000km and is used sparingly, but often.

    He loves getting his picture taken.

    I'll detail any other bits of work I manage to complete on him in here :)

    I don't believe so... There's a fair bit of overspray from what I can see in the engine bay. Although I'm confident it is the original colour, as I can't find anything to suggest otherwise, and I've had a good look.

    What a great little comrade! I really like the colour, is it the original paint?
