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

From U2's Zoo TV tour at the Rock and Hall of Fame

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.

    I saw several shows of that tour. This brings back memories!

      Which ones? I caught it in Cleveland, indoors, at the Richfield Coliseum, which no longer exists. I can’t believe it was more than 20 (!) years ago.

        East Rutherford, Saratoga Springs, and Philadelphia. Man, I’m feeling old now.
