    This car was built in Hungary. It was raced for many years in vintage rally events all over Europe. The last race it appeared was in Monte Carlo Historique. On that race the car passed many lot more prestigious participants like Aston Martins, Ferrariesa and a like while they were repaired. Others broke down, but this Trabi was keep on goin'. One late dark snowy evening the carburetor iced up in the Monaco hills. My friends got out, promptly peed on the carburetor, what therefore melted the ice, then off they went.... After it retired, came across the pond and participated in the 2013 HOT ROD POWER TOUR. In Birmingham (or Hoover) there was a small autocross track set up. The little Trabi beat the hell out of most of the cars in attendance. A car needed 650HP and up to run the same time as the Trabi. Now days it has a rather quiet life...
