Trabant Gletscherblau = VW Beetle 1974 Marina Blue (or Olympic Blue)

Today the Montreal’s Trabant club had a meeting.

Very nice and friendly people. My friend gave me his car to drive. I didn’t do this since 1999.

TatraFour more “known” cars were missing – mine, 1.1 Universal and two 2-strokes. One of the owners owns Tatra 603 (1959) and we had the pleasure to see it. This car was owned only by top members of the communist party in Czechoslovakia.

They called back these cars and changed everything, except the chassis, the exhaust system and the engine. This tells me that these cars were not very much and owned only by “VIP”, whatever this means. In my opinion this can has the same luxury as the soviet Volga (GAZ 21, 24).

One of the members of the Trabant club gave me a very useful information about the color that i want – gletscherblau.

Gletscherblau is absolutely the same as VW Beetle 1974 Marina Blue (or Olympic Blue).

If i can’t buy paint from Germany (TrabantWelt.DE or LackPoint.DE), i will ask the paint shop to mix the gletscherblau formula, that i found here https://www.trabime.cz/trabi.php?id=6&sid=4&tid=2394

If this doesn’t work, i will search for Marina Blue by VW. This should be fine.

God bless our deeds.
