    I went to see the movie "Spy" with Melissa McCarthy yesterday. There was a scene where she was in Hungary and tried to steal a Trabant Combi. She shattered a window with the intention of hot wiring it, but decided to steal a BMW instead. Very funny movie.

    I just saw that last night, it really was funny, I too was ready for some Trabi chase scene action, must go and see The Man From UNCLE!

    Question for the group then, would you risk letting a movie stunt man use your car in a chase scene? I think it would be worth the wear and tear for the glory of seeing Rosie on the big screen!

    They buy the cars they use for stunts because they have to modify them with rollbars and stuff, plus they usually end up kaputt.

    I went to see the man from uncle film today. Very good very funny and some good action sequences. The only bit that was disappointing is the car chase seen with the trabi. The bit you see in the film trailer is pretty much it. If you look closely you can see it's a 1.1 L Trabi done up to look like a old two stroke. But I would definitely recommend going to see the film, and you do get to see some great cars.
  7. It's definitely not a two-stroke air-cooled, as steam rises from the front after a crash... :) Good chase though !

    What about "Go Trabi, Go!"?
    Even though it's all in German, it's still a really funny film. Even with my very basic German, I could understand some of the dialogue. :)

    In 'company business ' with Gene Hackman there is a street scene with one. They are looking for a getaway car. The first car had a alarm, so no good. The next was a Trabi. He asks the guy with him" Is it alarmed", which the guy quickly responds " Only if you frighten it!"...

    It was six years ago according to my post. She was not nearly so famous then.

    Hello, does anyone know what the name of the movie is when two twin brothers appear, one lives in the GDR and the other in the FRG and they exchange to the surprise of their respective women?
