This year the world conmemorates the fall of Berlin Wall.I remember then a little car begins to move through the roads of western Germany: the Trabbi.
The Trabant was a low cost car, with a resin-made body, produced by VEB Sachsering Automobilwerke Zwickau in Saxony. Between 1957 and 1991 three million cars were produced in 4 main models. Even the GDR army had their "jeep" version, with canvas top and without side doors.
My friend Luis Pitarch found this neat yellow Trabbi some days ago in Valencia. Is the last model of the saga, a Trabant 1.1 Limousine. His license plates are from Hungary and dated from the early 90's.

Here is an old sketch that I have found today in a missing moleskine. I realized it a year ago, and is a one of the first Wyllis received in Spain through the US military aid in the 50's. The insignia is from infantry regiment "Wad-Ras 55", one of the units of Armoured Division "Brunete". The overall colour was, of course,olive drab.
