Hanging out at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (Pic du Jour)

These classic DDR trabants, left over from U2’s Zoo TV tour, will always have pride of place at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio. I try to stop by, even if just to stroll along the lake front, whenever I’m in town. And these cars always put a smile on my face.

Trabant-curious? From a post a couple years ago:

The average lifespan of the vehicle was an astounding 28 years. Officially it went from zero to 100kph/62 mph in 21 seconds and emitted four times as much pollution as the average car in Europe at that time. In all, 3,096,099 rolled off the assembly line.

There’s a 60-second video tour of one in that post, too.
