With that said, for the forums, there is more information under 'Announcements" titled "Future of the Forums' you could also copy and paste this link: http://www.trabantforums.com/threads/future-of-the-forums-donations.1762/

  • Description:
    Original engine swapped for a 1.6L VW engine. It runs great... But, Anybody have an original Barkas or Wartburg engine for sale?
    I heard that Charlie Bigsby in Longmont, CO may have one. I think he had a spare for the Wartburg that I bought from him. Might be worth asking.

      Thanks. Jonathan told me he knows of one in Virginia, too. I may reach out to Charlie.
