Traban(t) bam bam...

The Trabant is a car that was produced by former East German auto maker VEB Sachsenring Automobilwerke Zwickau in Zwickau, Sachsen. It was the most common vehicle in East Germany, and was also exported to countries both inside and outside the communist bloc. The main selling points was that it had room for four adults and luggage in a compact, light and durable shell and that it was fast (when introduced) and durable.

 

After finding this abandoned Trabant at Beekbergen main station, The Netherlands, I took a few snaps of this beauty. One more to come...
