DO IT!!!


I've heard that a common upgrade for the old Trabi's is to install a VW Polo engine. VW actually used the Polo engines for the very last two years production of the Trabant. VW was pretty smart to buy the factories in the East. Now everyone drives VW's in the former DDR. More so than Westi's(W. Germans) do.
