Artist's Description

Can we find a better major symbol of the old GDR (East Germany) than the old Trabi (Wartburg)
I found this during my visit to Berlin – Displayed right next to Checkpoint Charlie …
Could not resist it, it had to go in the box.
The Trabant is an automobile that was produced by former East German auto maker VEB Sachsenring Automobilwerke Zwickau in Zwickau, Sachsen. It was the most common vehicle in East Germany, and was also exported to countries both inside and outside the communist bloc. The main selling point was that it had room for four adults and luggage in a compact, light and durable shell. With its mediocre performance, smoky two-stroke engine, and production shortages, the Trabant is often cited as an example of the disadvantages of centralized planning; on the other hand, it is regarded with derisive affection as a symbol of the failed former East Germany and of the fall of communism (in former West Germany, as many East Germans streamed into West Berlin and West Germany in their Trabants after the opening of the Berlin Wall in 1989). It was in production without any significant changes for nearly 30 years with 3,096,099 Trabants produced in total
The car achieved cult status and international fame when the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. Long caravans of Trabant with East Germans ran for months after the Wall came down over the East-West German border, but in the years that followed Trabant disappeared from the streets as the Western brands were accessible to East German customers.
A important reason for this cult status was the look of the car the missing technical issues and lets not forget the Sound of the Trabi – you can hear it here.

And a little Trabi History.
