The Trabant (or Trabi) is a cold war relic of East German automotive engineering. Famously unreliable, incapable and notorious for being a death trap, the Trabant was not a good car. It does, however, have a total cult following. Tomorrow morning at 10am, 18 of them will be in front of the Spy Museum at 9th and F Streets in Northwest. Easily walkable from the Gallery Place Metro, this is a site you should not miss.
Besides, how often can you see a car that had more problems than the Pinto?
