I had a bit of luck when the "Treff til tusen's" only DAF parked up next to my Trabant. Both cars are of a similar size and have similar styling and with two cylinder air cooled engines. However, there the similarities stop. The DAF has a boxer engine mounted longitudinally driving the rear wheels with the Variomatic rubber band gearbox mounted between the rear wheels. There is no clutch and older cars could drive equally fast in both directions. I found it interesting to see the two cars next to each other.
EDIT : Just to add that the later DAF 33 models look more like a Trabant from the front.
EDIT 2: Added two pictures from Michiel76 showing his Trabant next to some Daf 33s. The front of the later models (32/33) looks more like a Trabant.

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/
