The classics; Berlin
East German nostalgia
If you have any inkling of European history then you've probably heard about the DDR or the German Democratic Republic. Which was the Eastern part of Germany until 1989-1990. Now, having just come back from Berlin and having encountered just two (!) East-German Trabants in Berlin over the whole week, it's safe to say that those living there want to forget about those days and move on. Frankly, we don't, which is why this article is about all those crappy old communist cars that were churned out of Eastern block factories and ended up on the DDR streets. Thankfully we found some great photos of the era by photographer Felix O, he kindly allowed us to publish his photographic work of the DDR and its cars. It's not only about the cars, the surroundings on the photos give a great feeling of what it must've been like to live there in those days. See more after the jump!Add a comment

Question: what's the best car to go ice racing with?
We've devised a new little category here, simply called 'Question:', from now on we will have some short ramblings on the extremely important questions in a petrolheads' life. Questions that come up in our minds when walking through the city, the countryside or when we are using public transport (and can only dream about using proper transport). Questions that could come up could include: 'What car do we need if we want to play Roxy Music whilst driving?' or 'What would be the best car to be sick in?' You get the idea, if you're reading this pokey little motoring blog, you've probably had similar questions come up. Today; 'what's the best car to go ice racing with?'Add a comment
