Trabant, Traband

The Trabant was a cheap car made in the German Democratic Republic. In German the car is known as Trabi, and it's now a collector's item. You can make your own (miniature) Trabant by downloading a file that you can print, cut, and fold. Here's the site: http://www.trabi-freunde.net/download.htm
Look for Trabant Bastelbogen near the bottom of the page, under the category "Sonstiges" (various). Or just click here to get the file "bastelbogen.zip"

Traband is a Czech Folk/Experimental group, featured on this week's Magic Carpet (from Radio Prague). They also have a page on Myspace where you can listen to a few samples.
