Well, after nearly fifteen years of dreaming about this day and meeting all of you out there with excellent expertise, I can officially say that my Trabant is on its way as I paid it off on June 7th with the exception of the shipping bill. Adam Benko figured he would surprise me as I come this far. I will still have to pay the shipping to get the paperwork for the car, but just knowing I will have the car is good enough for me! I also bought some 2-stroke oil and a gas can for Zeus (How nice of me) as his expected date of arrival is estimated to be on the 17th or 18th, I know for a fact that Benko is leaving Florida on the 15th. Woot woot! I want to give big thanks to you guys out there and since meeting some of you at the International Spy Museum last fall, I can honestly say that my life has been changed in such a neat, unique and Trabi-filled way. My life in the past was very hard, filled with abuse and trauma to which with my Trabant in my driveway is not only say to the world that anything is possible, but also help put my past where it belongs. I unfortunately have a lot to do in the upcoming year so chances of me making it for the DC Parade in November are super slim at this time. I still have to get a more practical car for daily use and start looking for my first apartment. I will happily keep you all updated about that! Thank you all again for making this dream of mine come true.
