  2. I have received a lot of messages asking about the future of the forums once my car sells. Well today it sold and will soon be on its way to its new home. 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/

    Your engine bay isn't very original for a 68 i wonder if your car is a factory rebuild? Or perhaps a later car disguised to get around import problems

      it's very common for usa cars to be registered as older than they really are to get around import problems . Perhaps Australia is the same? . In britain it is also done to get free road tax (older than 40 )

      Just enjoy driving it only @trainspotters@ will be able to tell it's not correct for a 1968

      Exactly , and as Trabants are so rare here it’s only relevant if I need parts . I took it on to save it from neglect and enjoy its status of quirky .
