Go Trabi Go?

I spotted this crusty old gem in the industrial park around my office. It was totally jammed up between old sofas, carpets, paint buckets and stuff.

 

It's a Trabant, the famous car that used to be manufactured in East Germany until the early nineties. They were rolling into the West like a flood after the wall had come down. Nowadays, there are not many of them around anymore.

 

The title is snatched from a German B-comedy (the original is without the question mark, though).
