I have just taken delivery of my first Trabi . I got it from a nice Hungarian chap who even delivered it for me . She starts well and has really good brakes . I have only selected gears on my drive but all seems to work for now. I can't help smiling from ear to ear ...I am smiling so much my face actually hurts ! My Neighbours said they want to put me in the nut-house !..It was fun watching them looking confused and asking "What is it?" "..Is it a LADA" ....."is it a stretched mini" ..I left them guessing ...Then I told them ..Its a Trabant They thought I was insane ...how right they are ... I don't do "Normal "
