Advice on UK slot shows swap meets

I actually quite like the Wartburg Knight, I have travelled in those, way better than a Trabi which IMO is downright dangerous.

Errr... not aware of a SAAB/Wartburg connection...
Yes.. Wartburg was a much better car than the Trabbi but that isn't saying much!

A tenuous connection I will admit, they both used engines heavily based upon the pre war DKW unit, the SAAB started out as a two cylinder and then went to three, where as the Wartburg Knight was always 3 cylinder as far as I know.

I have been to Zschopau and seen the old DKW/MZ factory and toured the small museum up in the town, very interesting. Wartburg came from Eisenach which is almost on the old east/west border much nearer Frankfurt and Kassal.

Two strokes rule !!
