Trabant...

Apparently, the Trabant turns 50 today lol...Nothing too spectacular, but it's probably the cheapest running car that you can get in Europe lol.

Here's a video about it lol.

I used to own a Trabant... picked it up in '87 for only roughly $10,000. I actually modded the hell out of that puppy and she made well over 500 whp. great car if you know what you're doing.

yes, it is very doable. I bolted on a turbo on her, full front-mount intercooler, along with other variable parts. she was faster than a mofo on speed.

There is no way in hell that you could get that much power from that engine...

I'm not going to let yet another thread turn into a flame war just because one member thinks he's some kind of millionaire. This will be closed soon (unless no more is said), as will most others that you type no doubt.

No you're not. No self-respecting millionaire would repeatedly come on a forum and gloat that he has everything anyone could want. Why not try to prove that ONE thing you have said is true?

I agree. The sad thing is, he probably really does think that we all believed what he was typing to start with...
