Kottke, the author of another of my favorite websites, did a story on how a company is updating the Trabant.
The Trabant, you see, is one of the worst cars ever made. (Thank you, formerly communist Eastern Europe.) It was a horrible polluter, terribly unreliable, ugly — and I have now run out of bad superlatives. This company is making it into a fun car that would be desirable to almost anyone that likes new little cars. (Me. In fact, I’d like one for Christmas.)
Humans sometimes amaze me in a good way.
