:??: Sure about 1991? Very implausible, as not any single Western car -except the DDR-spec Golf- or any other Western stuff is visible, so it's not even filmed in 1990. 1991 is absolutely impossible. As the scenes weren't filmed at wintertimes, it's not from late 1989. So not newer than September 1989.

Maybe you are right, ingo. It's hard situation with the year there - In description on YouTube states that it's a 1990 episode, on IMDB says, that it was filmed in 1991...

First shown on 17 February 1991 according to the IMDB, which is why the year is given as 1991.

I know - but it was definitely filmed at last in autumn 1989.

:wow: no, it wasn't!
It was filmed in May 1990: Link to "de.wikipedia.org"

:think: For some reasons the makers took care to avoid any Western details (which definitely already existed in May 1990, although the DDR-citizens still had no real money. That came at the 1.7.1990). Otherwise: it's also said, that the filming locations were some small towns in Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern - so regions, where all the times the time runs slower and which are famous known for the retardation in all kinds of coherences :D

P.S. @Moscvich433: just six weeks after the time of the filming for the very most of the vehicles, you can see here, this fate became true: /vehicle.php?id=893481

East Germans had so much money to buy some 'new' West German cars, if they threw their Eastern cars on dumps?

Yes. Money was not the problem in the DDR. Many people had thousands, even hundreds of thousands DDR-Mark (official rate to the D-Mark*: 1:1, the illegal rate: 1:3 up to 1:11) on their bank-accounts. The problem was, that they couldn't buy stuff. The prices for daily living, as food, apartment-rents, train-tickets etc. were extremely subsidized by the regime, but valuable goods as cars, TV-sets, watches, any kind of electronic stuff, also coffee, chocolade and other imported food was grotesquely overpriced. And premium stuff was exported for strong currency to the West - where it was flogged. In West Germany all DDR-products were always the low-cost junk (except Meißen-porcelain).

During the whole lifeperiod of the DDR there was a lack of cars. Even the own car-production couldn't keep pace. Trabant and Wartburg were not just helplessly outdated, the production-capacity in the also outdated plants was too weak, too. The ordering time for a new car was counted in years. From 6-7 years for a Trabant up to 20 years :wow: for a Lada. There was only one exception, one car, you could get immediately for DDR-cash: the Sapo :D

For that reason in the DDR used cars were incredibly overpriced. Usually an used car costs more than a new car. 20.000 DDR-Mark for a Trabant, 40.000 DDR-Mark for a Lada 1200, more than 100.000 DDR-Mark for a VW T3 Transporter with 8 seats.

So the DDR-people had no idea about realistic car-prices. So when they got the D-Mark (sorry, not in English or russian available: Link to "de.wikipedia.org" at the 1.7.1990, thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of them were gypped by West German used cars dealers (and private persons, who made their money, too).
After the 1.7.1990 the used car prices in West Germany exploded. Wrecks, which stood besides the shredder, were taken, were cobbled somehow halfway roadworthy - and sold to a stupid "Zoni" (opprobrious name for an East German, based on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_occupation_zone).

If the Western wrecks didn't collapse earlier, the rude surprise came after the unification at the 3.10.1990: because the TÜV-inspection was introduced -as the whole West German system- in the former DDR. Many thousands of the shortly before overpriced paid Western clunkers didn't survive the inspection - which has caused a kind of hate at the East Germans about the bogus "Wessi" (nickname for a West German).

*1 EUR = 1,95583 D-Mark/1 D-Mark = 0,51129 EUR
