I remember being able to smell if there was a Trabi ahead due to be overtaken in Germany round unification time.Not cool and always on the way to the allotment with its trailer containing a spade.Very sad.

Not cool but being a composite body and a 2 stroke does mean it has a couple of plus points.

I bet it was considered cool as **** in East Germany prior to the wall coming down on the basis that the alternative was shanks' pony.

I find utilitarian cars quite charming for some reason and I'd love a go in one but something that belches out clouds of smoke and has emissions which are off the charts can't be considered cool I don't think.

There are quite a few cool 2 stroke motorbikes out there, and they belch out smoke.

Quite an evocative smell, that isn't too familiar in these politically correct days.

I don't care if it is old. This piece of **** was so bad it won't ever be classic. Never driven one and don't need to, you can see how crap it looks which is enough.

Endearingly horrid with a twisted charm. It is the motoring equivalent of the deformed runt which somehow survives but although people smile it is more from pathos than enthusiasm.

Uncool in other words.
