My first car was also Trabant - it became so cheap by that time I bought it, so it was a great practice car.
 I did not like it very much because I never felt safe in it.:D (Big Grin)

Well I felt safe, but it's probably party because my drandpa is really great driver, he always tried to keep everyone inside of His car safe and also I have many good memories, like when I was a child and we were going to forest [search for fungi or for a walk] in trabant hehe :D We were also going to swimm and stuff, always in this car to go to correct place from home :)
Yhanks to shit photo I had liffle flahsback :)

It had nothing to do with the drivers ability, the body of the car was made of plastic and there were no any safety element built in.
Well, of course if there was + a bad driver,  that was a complete catastrophe:D (Big Grin) .

Love that slight change in yellow that tells me fixed and replaced!

Yes I am sure it was fixed.  The body of this car is so fragile, because it's made of plastic.
