This is the story of my '64 Vespa 150 - how it became mine and how it has given me a new vespatude.  I'll be recording the neat places I visit, the different things I do to make the Vespa my own, and - oh yeah - those reactions I get from both friends and strangers.

Still winning the Vespa
Oh boy, I'm still the highest bidder on the Vespa. Of course, right now the Vespa is starting to look better and better. The way fuel prices are starting to climb the 90 miles a gallon those things get is starting to warm me up to the little two wheeler. Really it wouldn't bother me so much except I wonder if I am getting a piece of garbage that looks good on the Internet but will fall apart when it gets here.

I just got a message today from a guy in Clemson who must have found my entry on eBay. It was one of those form messages "Don't get taking for a ride by cheap restorations to Vietnam and Indonesia. Buy your Vespa from me." I hope he isn't right! Only a couple of days left...
