A Trabi goes on a big trip

The second day of the refurbishments has begun. Overnight, a lot has happened, for instance the furniture from the till area has gone and many things are now covered for protection.

However, the biggest change is the missing Trabi, that is now at a specialist workshop to be reconditioned. The platform on which the Trabi stood will also be redesigned, so that the time for this step was just perfect. The transport was not easy, as the Trabi had to be brought out of the exhibition across the Spree promenade up the stairs on a trailer. Altogether, there were 7 people and a wire rope hoist helping moving the Trabi, so that the major effort was accomplished after 45 minutes.
