How Trabants were made



Trabant was a popular East German car, during the Cold War period. It was spread in all communist countries in Europe. Today cars are built by robots, and have aluminum/composite bodies. The Trabant was made out of pressed cardboard (not joking) and was literally hammered into submission. They just don't build them today like they used to :) Enjoy!

Comments for How Trabants were made

Trabant new edition

"Trabant was a popular East German car" - You wanted to say: Trabant was one of the few cars available. Popular? I don't think so :think:. Trabant and Wartburg were the most common brands in the former GDR. Both of them had a stunnig 2-stroke engine :cool:. In fact a company is planning on producing a new Trabant with modern technology as a retro-car. The leader of the former GDR (Erich Honecker) prefered driving in a much more reliable car, he used a Volvo.
