YES, you read it right.
The Trabant was one of the few cars produced in the GDR and bigger parts like the roof, doors, hood and cladding were made of paper or stronger carton if you want so. Just chassis, frame and mechanics were made of metal. The reasons was simple. Metal was expensive as not many resources available. Paper, made of trees was a safe resource and way less expensive to produce.
After ordering a new Trabant you got it delivered after about 20 years.
YES, you again read that right.
Have a wonderful day.

I’m really fascinated from the story of the GDR. So you’re welcome and have a wonderful day ✨🤩☀️👌🏿

can you believe that? it was when you ordered officially as a normal person. if you had influence to the covernment, it was usually faster. of course the black market with higher prices and less waiting time.
