    Hey everyone,

    Just joined up because I came into a Trabant at the start of the plague, haha. I've been visiting the forums quite a bit to learn and read up on things, and am excited to finally be able to post. Mine is an 82 I purchased from a neighbor. Low miles, great overall car. With baby #2 on the way, I may have to sell however. I'll keep you all posted!

    I'm in Northern Illinois and am a High School Automotive instructor. I've been around cars my whole life. My current projects are a 74 Morris Mini 850, 1957 Chevy 3100 Truck, 1979 Vespa 50 Special, and a 1964 Vespa 125. I've got my hands full!

    Take care,

    Welcome! There are a few other Trabis in the Chicago area. I grew up around there and also had a 1959 Chevy 3200 at one point. Working on the Trabi is like that, although with parts from Germany vs. trips to NAPA.
