Washington, DC

Well this was an odd scene on Sat. outside the Spy Museum at 800 F St, NW. Odd but cool. According to the Spy Museum’s Web site:

“The ONLY Trabant Rally in the United States!

Where were you when the Wall fell? The Berlin Wall is long gone, but one Cold War icon is still chugging away—the Trabant. Despite their questionable performance and smoky two-stroke engines, these little cars are now affectionately regarded as a symbol of East Germany and the fall of Communism. Trabants are a rarity here, but on 6 November some of the finest examples in the U.S will chug their way to the International Spy Museum to celebrate our Fourth Annual Parade of Trabants.”

It looks like Mr. T in DC was there too and snapped this great shot:
