    Thread: RM needs less talk more pics

      The question is why, lol


      "...the Trabant 1.1 produced 1990-1991 with a 1043cc VW engine (making the "1.1" a slight misnomer). The engine for the Trabant 500, 600 and original 601 was a small two-stroke engine with two cylinders, giving the vehicle modest performance. At the end of production in 1989 it delivered 19 kW (26 horsepower) from a 600 cc displacement. The car took 21 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) and the top speed was 112 km/h (70 mph). There were two main problems with the engine: the smoky exhaust and the pollution it produced—nine times the amount of hydrocarbons and five times the carbon monoxide emissions of the average European car of 2007. The fuel consumption was 7 L/100 km (40 mpg-imp; 34 mpg-US).[4] Since the engine does not have an oil injection system, two-stroke oil has to be added to the 24 litre fuel tank[5] every time the car was filled up, at a 50:1 ratio of fuel to oil. Owners normally carry a container of two-stroke oil in the car for this purpose. The earlier models have no fuel gauge; a dipstick is inserted into the tank to determine how much fuel remains."

      Seriously. The owner must have some connection or love affair with Trabant.

      I will add in a few of my cars

      My MK1 MR2 (The OVERSIZED Go Kart)


      My MK2 GTI

      Very poor engine swap



      My current car MK3 98 Jetta GT



      This was my beast, but it meet a bad end when the motor blew out


      And now for a funny pics. This was my 96 Jetta with a GTI front end swap. I had to abandon it during the Dec 06 blizzard and when I went back to get it this was how I found it. the hood was closed the entire time
