Comrade Trabi was born in May*, 1968 and had the factory rebuild done in 1987.

- Comrade Trabi's motor was rebuilt with the finest worn-out secondhand parts just over 58,000km ago. Recently, after returning (victoriously) from yet another Alien Abduction, a modern carburetor has mysteriously appeared. Rumor has it that it was a token of appreciation from six liberated star systems.
- A Bluetooth speaker under the seat and pretty blinking LED strip lights around the perimeter of the roof provide Comrade Trabi's In Car Entertainment, as do many of his Human occupants.
