When the first Trabant was launched in 1957, it could hold its own against West German models. Its 18 horsepower may not have been a threat to the Goggomobil or the VW Bug, but the latter certainly didn't leave their Eastern cousins far behind. Drive It! takes a trip back in time with the Trabant 601, the third and most frequently built model in the Trabant series.
