PETER’S OTHER CLASSICS
1989 Trabant P601
One of the most recognisable symbols of Eastern Bloc motoring, the two-stroke Trabant has a Duroplast body (rather than cardboard, as often stated). Peter’s car was built in the same month the Berlin Wall fell – November 1989.
1990 Tatra 613-3
The successor to the 603, the Vignaledesigned 613 was fitted with a larger 3.5-litre rearmounted V8 blessed with quadruple overhead camshafts.
1986 Wartburg 353W
One of the few Eastern Bloc models of its era to make an impression in the west, this model found a home with 19,000 UK motorists under the name of the Wartburg Knight. A 992cc twostroke, of course, it’s Peter’s practical long-distance load-lugger.
