1989 Trabant 601 S 600cc two-stroke from UK and Ireland
Makes you love it, I would kill anyone who ever hurt it...
Running restoration, so varied works required.
Simple, easy welding repairs x2.
Replaced ignition coils, battery and spark plugs.
Makes you wonder why other cars have so much stuff in them; this is like owning a steady reliable wee pony.
Anything can be fixed quickly and cheaply, and it will always put a smile on your face. The steering/handling is Mini-like, but with less power.
Great classic, particularly a great first classic.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
