Cohort Pic(k) of the Day #2: Wartburg On The Go

What a great shot by Rivera Notario. It’s a Wartburg, built in the former East Germany, and he found it in Budapest, Hungary. I can’t tell its vintage, so I’m not sure whether it’s one of the older two-stroke versions, or one the ones made after 1988 with a VW EA111 four-stroke 1.1 or 1.3 L engine. I can’t exactly see a blue cloud trailing behind it, so quite likely it’s got Volkswagen power under the hood.

If you want to read more, I wrote up the full Wartburg story here. I called it “The East German Audi, In More Ways Than One.”
