Is there seriously a better or cooler looking car than this....
Spotted during lunch hour just now, walking around South Kensington. Have shot this lovely 1968 Targa before, could happily shoot it all day with my film camera.
Full album here this shot is also featured in my cars album
Love this '61 GS, great character! Restored scooters are all well and good, they look lovely but I'd take this over a resto..
This shot is featured on the Flickr photostream of Green Tree Scooters but was taken by Creative Images by Allison, check out the full album by Allison here
Green Tree Scooters are Vintage Vespa Restoration Specialists based in Mason City, Iowa, USA. I've known of them for a couple of years now and they turn out some great scooters.
Great shot taken by Arian Durst in the Eternal City. The two subjects together visually may be slightly cliched but very good composition and well captured to get the vespa central in the frame; I would be very happy if I'd taken this...
Arian, thanks for letting me feature this ; )

Some beautifully taken images by my Vespa friend Roman of his restored 1953 Douglas Rod Model. Roman established the VE8PA.CH blog and is happy for me to share these images with you here on vespamore but they are strictly under the copyright of VE8PA.CH - please respect that.
All of Roman's photographs are available to buy as prints and can be ordered by contacting him at VE8PA.CH the vespas shown on the site are also for sale..
These basement shots remind me of the shots I took a few years ago back in 2010 of my former 1969 original paint, first series Sprint Veloce, see here

Very nice period shot of an Eddy Grimstead SS180 Hurricane awaiting its new owner, believed to have been taken outside the Gants Hill/Eastern Avenue shop. Series 1 Lambretta in background.

Re-blogged from VE8PA.CH I had to use Google translate to read the German text but you get the idea of the original post on keeping things original where possible; particularly as nowadays people are increasingly realising the value and importance of retaining a Vespa's provenance and history over restoration.
Excellent shot by lo-fi photocracy taken in Viareggio, Toscana... love this!
The above photo was taken approx 4 years ago and this smallframe has since been restored, going by this recent shot here Some would say it needed restoring, not me though; things are only original once. A shame all that history has been sand-blasted away and lost under new paint. The mudguard/fender could have been 'popped out'; fair enough if things had deteriorated beyond repair but this 50 Special was beautiful just as she was in my opinion ...
Currently advertised for sale at Retrospective Scooters in North London, this immaculate, totally original Vespa T5 MK1 from the mid '80s. Amazingly, this has only done a genuine 271 miles from new..!! It's not cheap at £4995.00 and is probably one for vespa collectors I guess, anyway I'd be surprised if it hangs around for long ..
