    These look like delightful models of a "cult" car! Despite the fact that it is hailed as the "worst car ever", at a classic car show in England, a Trabant got a lot of attention from collectors!
    An American car importer got a letter from the makers of the Trabant some years ago. He was asked if he would be interested in importing the car =, and as he expressed tentative interest, Trabant immediately sent an example hot off the production line for his inspection. When it arrived, the American looked at it and said, "Gee, these Trabant guys must be serious - they've even sent me a quarter-scale model for me to see what the real thing would look like!"
