Here is a cool site I came across with modern styled vespas for sale painted by different contemporary british artists, which are now up for auction. I don't have the 3,000 British Pounds to bid on my favorite one in the picture above...but wouldn't it be nice...

Every Lunar new year a group of vespa riders drive around Singapore to deliver oranges, rice and other goodies to old folks homes.
"...once a year, these vintage beauties dating back to 1964 can still be seen on the roads for a good cause. It has become an annual tradition for the Vespa riders to get together to spread the Lunar New Year cheer."

Here's a nice little story about Brett Hamilton receiving a call from Vespa for a test ride.
"Splitting the lanes, passing the myriad of caged drivers felt like cheating. Like taking the easy way out. That didn't stop me from saying, 'Goodbye traffic'. Next.
With a smile I wound my way up and over the rocky passes outside the city with the boiling kettle hum from the GT turning this mission into a pleasure."
