The trabant is a car produced previously in East Germany. It was exported mainly to the other communist countries and this includes Hungary. It was meant to be fast and durable. The average lifespan was 28 years. The engine was not the most efficient. as it emitted a large amount of exhaust fumes. With the reunification of Germany. the Trabant prouction line eventually closed in 1991.
This many explain why there were more than a few T-shirts being sold with the "Trabant" on it.

Most of the pictures are my own. When I can remember ( which is only lately) I credit the folks whose pictures I blog. Apologies to the owners of earlier pictures used in this blog. Back in the dark ages, I wasn't as tech-savvy as now.
