And the one we want to show you today is dressed like a MIG-29. And, given the German MIG29s in the background, the contrast between these flying machines and the Trabant is startling and that's because the MIG-29 was a seriously capable weapon, one that served an important role for the Soviet Air Force.
The timing for this photo showing up on Reddit is also worth mentioning - the image showed up on the social network yesterday, while today the news on famous Russian aircraft designer Ivan Mikoyan, one of the minds behind the MIG-29, surfaced.
Aged 89, Mikoyan was still a MIG adviser, having spent most of his career as a top engineer for the corporation, which was founded by his uncle Artyom Mikoyan.
Returning to the Trabant, if its communist German birthplace isn't enough to convince you of the issue associated with this car, perhaps the review you'll find in the video below will.
