Ready for race day!
I drove this from Budapest to Emden. Now it's in Texas. Just painted the barkas in a new color.
Do you have an address where the treffen will be? I'm travelling across Germany with my East German camper, I'd like to stop and participate.
Everyone! Thank you so much for the information! I'm not sure whitch port will I use for shipping yet. Last time I've brought a Trabi home I've shipped it with the new VW's and Porche's out of Emden on the VW ship. It was an experience! Monique, I know exacly what it a Simson Schwalbe! I use to ride on one after high school!
I'm thinkin about driving to Aarau from Budapest. Anyone would like to join me from Austria? It would be pretty nice to drive together with more Trabis in a row!
Thank you again, Peter
Thank you for the fast repply! My plan is to fly to Hungary and pick up my new Trabi on August 15, then attend at my cusin's wedding in Szeged on the week end. I will get a temporary license plate from Hungary what lets me drive it for a month in Europe. I will leave Hungary on Tuesday August 21st and planing to end up in Bremenhaven or Emden where I will put the Trabi on the boat bound to Galveston Texas. So what I'm really looking for is a show for Trabis or any eastern block cars on the weekend of
August 25. The jack pot would be a Zwicau meet!(sorry if I miss spelled the birth place) I always wanted to see the factory! But I would be happy to stob by any other town in Germany or Austria. Switzerland would sound really nice but It is a bit out of my way.
I will have my wife and two kids (4 and 6 years of age) with me.
My daughter still remembers my last Trabant, she still missing her! I regret selling it too. It was a 1981 with 18000 Km in it. I drove it from Budapest to Emden on the autobahn!!! This time we will take the back roads to see Germany and Austria. Can't wait!
So any recommendations?
I just found your forum, I'm planing to buy a Trabi this summer in August and drive it to Emden from Budapest. I am looking for a Trabant show (car meet) on the way there.
I have a small car collection. I have Barkas, and really miss my Trabi. I bought one two years ago, but a friend of mine bought it from me. I really miss it!
Sorry only speak English. Can anyone help me to find a Trabi meeting in August this year?
Thank you Peter
