VINTAGE RETRO TRABANT (TRABI)
Trabants are legendary Communist vehicles made of fibre glass and boasting a classic 2-stroke enginee. The name Trabant means a Tour Guide or Peoples Guide peoples Car, as nobody else drives them. The first factory was in Zwikau, and the first prototype was called the PHO 500. This car was a serious success for that time, and soon after it was followed by the type 600! The best known version is the 601 series, which included the Trabant combi and the Trabant tunor (limousine). A remarkable 3.5 million of these were produced Because the Trabant was easy to maintain, and because you could travel a long distance if you carried enough spare parts, it soon became very popular. It was also renowned for its noise and polution. If you wanted on of these cars in the late 70’s or early 80’s you either needed good connections or you’d have to join a waiting list of up to a year. The final version of te Trabant was the 4-stroke engine, and the last one was produced in 1991. There was also a small factory in Hungary, and there were plenty of specialist Trabant Service stations all over the Eastern Block.
The main reason people lost interest in the Trabant was because they learned about all kinds of different cars on the other side of the Iron Curtain. Trabant therefore became a symbol of the Communist era, and while people were trying to move on and embrace freedom Trabants were no longer popular. However, as the years went by some of the older cars started to become unique and fashionable and some enthusiasts started to join Trabant Clubs. Trabant Parades were organised, and for a while it looked like there might even be a Trabant NT (New Thinking) revival. An electric Trabbi was expected to reach the market in 2012, and the first prototypes of this were produced in 2007, but due to a lack of finances it never happened.
