Camaro VS. Trabant

I suffering some good old fashioned GM stupidity today and came across then and realized all in all things could be much much worse. You guys who hate back up sensors take a look at some of the standard "features" a Trabant

A Trabant should smoke after long periods of non-use. It should smoke when started until engine is warm and it will always smoke when bearing a heavy load. A good Trabant should NOT smoke 24/7.
Trabants will usually pull gently to one side or another when driven. They may have somewhat squishy brakes that may also pull. They will have a rough, uneven idle when properly adjusted and will sound like they are about to stall but should not.

I got that from the USA Trabant fan page...


More specs

36 ci parallel twin 27hp at 4200rpm 38lb ft of torque UNIBODY!!
0 - 60 30.3sec
1/4 mile 22.5sec at 56mph

Got that from a importer site so if your tired of waiting for your camaro You have options. I guess its still better than a Mustang.

A plea if you own a Trabant i will meet you wherever you are to race u with my 2ss when it comes in. I will start in the hotel to give u a chance. Must film for youtube.

I think that if there were a Trabant owning member here on the forums... they'd probably drive themselves off of a bridge following your ode de Trabante
