Cohort Pic(k) of the Day: Trabants – On The Go, And Not

Roshake77 posted several Trabants still on the streets in what I assume is Budapest, including this wagon on the go. Like so many cars from the 60s or so, it looks mighty small in today’s traffic.

This one is a 1990 601 Hycomat, which had an automatic clutch for disabled drivers.

And here’s one in a lovely shade of green.

It makes a nice contrast with the Toyota Yaris, roughly the modern equivalent.


Here’s the full CC on the Trabi, by Roger Carr:
