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.

One more Tuesday
I'm now told that the Vespa should arrive this coming Tuesday. Of course, I've been told that twice before. Somehow, I think that they are right this time - at least right about it coming next week.

The guys at Forward Air are laughing at me. I've called them once a day this week about paperwork, etc. They chuckled as they said, "We've got your number. We'll be sure to give you a call as soon as it gets in." Something tells me they will be keeping an eye out for the crate.

I went into a local motorcycle shop to get some two cycle engine oil for the Vespa. You wonder how motorcycle people will respond to a Vespisti. I went up to the counter and explained I wanted a high grade two cycle engine oil for a vintage Vespa. When I said, "vintage Vespa" the guy behind the counter said, "Cool."

Now I've got about everything I need.
