Back in the day, East Berlin's playas used to roll deep in motherfuckin' Trabbis, yo. This cute-yet-execrable vehicle was a pinnacle of East German engineering, which is to say that it was dirty, cheap, and didn't change much over its production run. Trabi-Safari, a Berlin and Dresden-based company that rents Trabants for tours, also owns (and hires out) the world's longest version of East Germany's people's car. We can't imagine the pain of trying to get the Duroplast body to look straight with that much of a stretch. Maybe that's why they made it a phaeton. [Thanks to Alexander for the pic and the tip.]
