The Lada is the car most often associated with Communist Russia in the 1970s and 1980s. But ask any Russian who lived through those totalitarian times, and they’ll likely tell you that it was the Trabant that most comrades drove during the Communist regime in Eastern Europe. And many automotive experts claim that it was the Trabant that gave Communism a bad name throughout the Western hemisphere. Powered by a weak two-stroke engine that maxed out at a paltry 18 horsepower, the Trabant was a car constructed entirely of recycled materials. The body was made out of a recycled fiberglass. Designed in the 1950s, the Trabant was billed by the government of the time as East Germany’s answer to the Volkswagen Beetle on the other side of the Berlin Wall. It was known throughout Eastern Europe as a “people’s car.” Sadly, Trabants smoked like a trash can fire – that is, if they ran at all. Oh yeah, this car also didn’t have brake lights or turn signals. (Details, details). If you can find it, archival news footage exists of thousands of East Germans driving their Trabants across the border when the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. Most of these cars were quickly abandoned by their owners once in West Germany. Maybe they went shopping for a Volkswagen?
