Representing The East Side: The Wartburg

The Trabant got all the press when the Berlin Wall fell, but let's not forget the other fine automotive products of the Deutsche Demokratische Republik. The Wartburg was exported to much of Western Europe during its heyday, and this vintage (German-language) ad shows off some of its better features: Flathead 4-banger, coil springs, and some truly alarming body roll (clearly the pencil-thin swaybar ain't helping much). Please, readers, someone find a photo of a Wartburgamino- you know they're out there somewhere.
