Wow, I cannot cease to be amazed at the condition of this quite ancient vehicle, cutely named ‘Trabant’ A sturdy 4 seater, 2 stroke vehicle, German made and still to be seen smoking the roads of Bulgaria.
A very popular Bulgarian vehicle and by far my favorite of all the ancient Bulgarian vehicles.
The Trabant wasn’t really a paper mache vehicle, but paper was often used in its construction.
Born in 1957, the number of Trabants made reached almost 4 million by early 1991!
Here are a small collection of Trabants I have seen driving around locally. They include :
The Trabant who wants to be a tree!
The Trabant pick up – custom made conversion!
A Trabant with a roof rack!
and the super speedy Trabant that actually overtook me before I sped up to grab the photos of it’s happy occupants!
Two stroke Trabant
Very smoky indeed!
and there is an estate Trabant up in town, will grab the photo next time I am up there
