Barkas, "the" East German van. The production capacity of the GDR industry was limited. Goods like automobiles for private use were produced only in small numbers. Thus, the streets were filled with "dinosaur" cars.
A Trabbant in an alley: a classic scene from the 90s. Pollution regulation now means the few Trabbies are seen on Hungary`s streets. This tiny East German car, made from resin and cardboard, is now a collector`s item.
The Trabant is a car that was produced by former East German Auto Maker VEB Sachsenring Automobilwerke Zwickau in Zwickau, Sachsen. It was the most common vehicle in East Germany. Find the link to download a free paper model of this cult car at Papermau!
