Trabants in DC Tomorrow


Originally uploaded by James UK.

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?

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
