    Yes, Trabant owners as a group seem to be optimists.

    Thanks Everyone :)
    I cleaned the Fuelsystem and checked the alternator, starter, and breaker points and then with a new battery it fired up and ran really nice with IDLE.
    But did only test the first gear since their is no brakes.
