Trabant wedding

Fritz Schneider and his wife got married in Iasi, Romania… nothing extraordinary about that I hear you say. According to Fritz, a Romanian tradition is for the wedding guests to have a wedding parade of cars, bedecked with flowers and decorations. Fritx and his wife are both Trabant fans so they invited everyone they knew with a Trabant to their wedding… resulting in a 22 Trabant strong procession through the city. The parade made it on to local and national Romanian news!

Fritz and his wife are planning a Trabant themed bar/cafe, all of us in the workshop of Peasant Tuning are looking forward to seeing pictures of that when its finished!
