Editorial Reviews

In a Cold War-era world dominated by vehicles made primarily of metal, could an automobile with a synthetic body really work?

Despite immense political obstacles, workplace surveillance and suspicion, inadequate raw materials and improvised machinery, VEB Sachsenring Automobilwerke Zwickau designers and assembly line workers succeeded in building more than three million of these durable domestic cars for citizens living behind the Iron Curtain.

Its worldwide popularity today stands as a tribute to the ingenuity and tenacity of its builders.

Its name: The Trabant.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

If you are a Trabi enthusiast this is a must have, along with "A Car for a Dollar". There is some overlap between the two, but not as much as you might imagine. Very well made, professional documentary about the coolest car in the world.

BTW, see the NEW Trabi at [...] . I will be the first one on my block to have one of those.

EXCELLENT DVD!!! I love the Trabi, my parents had one, it was sooo easy to repair yourself and parts were readily available for very very low prices. It is indeed sad that just because the Trabi was made in East Germany, people in the West badmouthed such an affordable car with soo much personality! The story of the Trabant should be discussed much more! Wish they would build many more... I highly value this DVD! EXCELLENT!!!!

For those out there that are interested in this particular car, this is one of two must have video's to learn about its history, and to see some vintage footage. English narration with subtitles during interviews!
