  • Trabant Terrorizes NY

    In a final bit of defiance, a Trabant monster car terrrorized downtown Manhattan, NY before exploding in a blaze of two-stroke glory.

    I remember visiting East Berlin a few years before the wall came down. I was crossing a four lane road and about 100 yards away there was a set of traffic lights with a heap of Trabants and a Wartburg or two waiting for the green. They were revving their engines and I can vividly remember the sound of angry bees and this blue haze almost obscuring them. It was a real traffic light grand prix as they set off. I didn't panic - I figured that from a standing start it would take them about 20 seconds or so to cover the 100 yards before they got to me.
