DUDE! Go watch UHF if you can find it. Its a realllly wierd movie, and they drive a Trabant in it. I always wanted to know what kind of car it was they drove, my vote goes to Trabant because it's so retarded looking. I want to go buy one.

Damn it, I just got them to reopen this thread, please don't whore it to death!

I contend that the Trabant is the bigger POS. I just hate these cars with a passion. I'm an avowed anti communist. Not because it is against my ideology, because it is closely related in it's socialist tendencies to my preferred form of government, but because communism caused the Trabant. I am a car enthusiast, and I love cars. All form of cars, fast cars, slow cars, beautiful cars, ugly cars, I used to think, if it's got 4 wheels and an engine, I love it. Even a run down '79 Chevette. Then I learned about the Trabant, and my beliefs were shattered.

I'm sure if Lenin knew what he was paving the way for, he would have betrayed his followers to the Czar in 1916.

Niether suck...

Niether suck...
I have a friend who had a trabbi imported, a very fun car to drive indeed. You have to open a fuel petcock before driving, as the fuel system is gravity feed - and the steering is not self centering - so it can get hairy if you've never driven one before.
People who say they suck need to get a life - or at least drive the cars they criticize, and form REAL opinions.

:huh:

You're stark raving mad! The Trabant is without a doubt the worst automobile made in the last 50 years!

Your statement is like saying "Imolation yourself with gasoline isn't that bad, you just have to put up with excruciating pain until you die "

Perhaps I did not adequately explain my hatred to the Trabant. I'm surprised this car didn't start world war three. I even like Ladas, but I absolutely DETEST the Trabant.

O.K.

I'm aware of you're opinion, but could you please give me some reasons why you hate it?
Oh yeah, and you can't state that it's being made out of duroplast is something bad.

Reasons it's good.

I'll give you some reasons the Trabant is a GOOD car.

#1 - is a 2-stroke - no oil changes, ever!
#2 is made out of duroplast - never rusts.
#3 you only need 2 sparkplugs for a tune up.
#4 you can rebuild the engine is two hours.
#5 gets 45mpg or better.
#6 ultra reliable.
#7 So simple anybody can work on one.
#8 air-cooled, never flush fluids, never runs the risk of boiling over or freezing.
#9 Ultimate East German automobile (though Wartburg owners may protest)
#10 much cooler and more unique than anything Porsche has ever produced!

I wish I had one.

Just a question 2stroke, if you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for your Subaru 360? I love those little things.

I paid $400 for it, with 20,000 on the clock. Rough shape though and the brakes were frozen.
My vehicles list says I own two - I should own two by now. There's this guy who has four, and keeps telling me that he wants to sell me one, but everytime I ask him what he wants for it - he says it's not for sale! (he's a flake, and old, and drunk, and crazy) the sooner that car is out of his possesion the better!

?

So? Cbass? why don't you like the Trabant? I'm still waiting to read your unfounded criticisms
At least it should be entertaining.
Also just wondering, have you ever driven a Trabant? have you ever even seen a real one up close? It's beyond me how you can hate one of Germany's greatest automobiles.

You still have to mix the oil and the gas, every time you fill up.

Great, if you enjoy having a plastic bodied car. I don't, personally.

That might have something to do only having two cylinders. An extra couple cylinders can do wonders for the smoothness of an engine, and for the sound it makes as well.

I can rebuild a 924 engine in two hours, and when I put it back together again, it will make more than 30hp! :P

So does a Geo Metro, but I'm not crazy about those either :P

They had better be reliable, and simple to work on as well. I personalyl don't know a mechanic who would be willing to work on one :hehehe:

So is a 911, and they're really nice cars. Unlike a Trabant. (note, would have used a comma there, but I refuse to mention both cars in the same sentence, out of respect for the Porsche)

Granted, that's quite a feat, given it's stiff competition

:huh: :huh :huh:

Point one, no thing can be more or less unique than another thing, the word unique is an absolute. I think Porsche is much more distinctive, given 50 years of breaking the sports car mold, again and again, with successively better models. The Trabant, on the other hand, falls in the same boat as the rest of the automotive monstrosities that should have never seen the light of day.

A word of advice, don't make enemies of Porsche Nazis who are favoured to become moderators
