If you got off the plane to find that, you should slit your wrists, because few cars are worse than the Trabant. Not only is it a symbol of horrific Cold-War era oppression, but the body is an unrecyclable plastic, pushed around by a two stroke engine with no emission control.
At first I thought that a bit harsh, but then I realized that the people who had no other choice in what car to drive were not flying on airplanes either. There was a waiting list of years for Trabants in the soviet bloc. Eastern europeans who managed to get over the border (into free europe) in them parked them and walked away.
