Trabant was routinely used as a team car all over the Comintern nations. The problem was the body was made from duroplast, something like Bakelite with cotton or wool as a fiber reinforcement. The old PreAlpina racks clamped onto the rain gutter. The plastic rain gutter lasted as long as it lasted. Suspect the team mechanics had some sort of fix for that. They would take the weight.

I was thinking more of something like a Bianchi Cesare or Gloria Tipo A on the roof of an Alfa Romeo 6C 2500. If a Trabant does it for you thatís good too.
