Jury chooses the best maintained Trabi near Usedom

The high fuel costs could not stop them: 70 Trabis come together on the Baltic Sea. Many haven’t seen each other for a long time.

Anklam – Friends of the GDR cult car Trabant got their money’s worth in Quilow near the Baltic Sea island of Usedom on Saturday.

Despite high fuel prices, around 70 vehicles from Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania came to the traditional annual meeting in the village near Anklam, as Jens Rüberg from the Trabbi-Buggy Club 93 association told the German Press Agency. “There wasn’t that much interest on the first weekend in March for a long time.” Due to the corona, many Trabi fans hadn’t seen each other for a long time. The people of Brandenburg had come to Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania from Oberhavel and Prignitz to exchange experiences.

The association is known in East Germany for the international Trabi meeting on the Ascension Day weekend at the airfield in Anklam, which is scheduled to take place again at the end of May 2022. A jury chose the “Top Trabi MV 2022” from among all the two-stroke cars that arrived.

A 42-year-old from Wolgast won here. His 1987 Trabant station wagon 601, two years older than its owner, was voted the best-maintained and technically most intact vehicle. The kick-off meeting on the first weekend in March has been held since 1995. dpa
