I'm not affiliated, just thought it was neat.

Why is there not Wartburg in "Tag this topic:"?

Did anyone notice the car in the next driveway?

It looks like a Trabant to me, that must be an interesting neighborhood.

Definitely a Trabi.

Obviously that neighbourhood is a communist spy haven. Better go wake up Old Man McCarthy.

I bought my wife an '89 MBZ 190E 2.6 last night. I was talking to the seller and mentioned that I like odd cars. When we got to his house he said come to the garage, "you'll get a kick out of this."

Sure enough I did! It was the same Wartburg that was for sale in May, in PA I think.

It made my day, even more than the nice price I got on the W201 for the wife.
