>(Based on the anecdotes I've heard, the real-life Trabant is a strain >to the imagination.)
I have relatives in the former East Germany (near Dresden, in fact), and they still have a Trabant. The parts are cheap, even today, and as one of my family over there is half-owner of a metal shop, he gets his income in part by making whatever isn't still sold for spare parts.
Of course, he says, he'd never drive the Trabant. He likes not having matching bruises on buttocks and skull, as he puts it.
