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.

So close and yet so far
The Vespa is in Greenville! Technically, it is in Greer, but who cares about technicalities right now? The point is I know where the scooter is and know it can only be a matter of days before I have it parked in my driveway.

I received word at around 4:30 p.m. today that the Vespa arrived at the warehouse. I was told to contact the warehouse for more information. When I called them, they confirmed that the crate was there but it had not yet been cleared by the shipping company. Arrggghhhh! So, why did the shipping company have me call him?

So, I have to wait for the shipping company to clear it. The warehouse will call me once that it done and then I will call the customs guys to let them know it is there. They will go do their thing and then call me to come down to the customs department to sign the final forms. Then I go over to the warehouse and pick the bike up.

How long will all this take? I'll let you know...but don't hold your breath.
