Weed-Whacker In a Cardboard Box: NPR Drives The Trabant

You know those people whose Volvos have every single radio preset set to National Public Radio? So if you happen to be riding with them (at 4 MPH below the speed limit) you'll know in no uncertain terms that they never listen to anything, you know, unenlightened? Well, maybe this little story about aficionados of East Germany's beloved little plastic smog monster will convince such folks to trade in that 740 for a two-stroker. A real people's car!
