    Hi guys, Finally picked up my Trabi today after almost 2 months at sea. Its a 1971 model and is in pretty good condition for its age. Just sourcing a new battery so i can start it up. 20160916_140142.jpg

    Just finished getting it registered, it all went pretty smoothly.Apparently its the first Trabant to be registered in NSW - they had to call their IT department to manually enter the make and model because there has never been one in the system :D Looking forward to some nice weather to go for a drive.

    My mate Ray (Westie) is "Trabi curious" and may try to find you for a look at your new ride.
    Congrats, the car looks really nice!

    Dave. Cool car. Where in Sydney are you based?
    How did you get your Trabi here?

    Hi Ray. Thanks :) I'm near Parramatta. I imported it myself (with the help of an importer)
    Since mine is the only registered one in NSW im doubtful there is a club, i could be wrong though.

    Hi Dave
    I am just up the road in Kings Langley.
    Yours may be the only fully registered Trabi, but there are others with Historic rego. Check out Trabant Owners Club of Australia in Facebook.
    I looked at one of them at a German car club day three weeks ago.

    Dave. There is a Trabi in the Gosford Motor Museum as well. One of the Trabant Owners Club of Australia members just told me about it.

    Ray, I checked out the facebook page, apparently there are 13 of them in Aus - thats pretty cool, i didn't realize there were that many. unfortunately a few of them are not being registered/driven because of all the hoops you have to jump through to register them here.
