Parade of Trabants headed to D.C.

trabantsIt’s been more than 25 years since the Berlin Wall fell, but one Cold War icon is still chugging away—the Trabant.  Despite their questionable performance and smoky two-stroke engines, these little cars are now affectionately regarded as a symbol of East Germany and the fall of Communism. Trabants are a rarity here, but on November 5 some of the finest examples in the US will chug their way to the International Spy Museum to celebrate the Tenth Annual Parade of Trabants.  While the cars are on display, experts will be on hand to answer questions about Trabants, the Cold War, and Communism, while the Alte Kameraden German Band provides festive music.
