This is a 1963 Vespa. 150cc, 4 speed hand clutch, kick start. 1 side view mirror, with a rear rack and also a tow hitch rack ($500 value). It has front hand brake and a rear foot brake. I have Spare tire included. Needs a little "tinkering" with Carburetor to maximize performance but does run great.

I am including touch up paint, some tools and a vespa manual. I imported this from Vietnam. It is beautiful, but we live in a big city that doesn't allow for the enjoyment of scooter riding!!!! It is are titled already, which saves you so much time and paperwork and money from importing yourself. No dealing with customs, shipping companies or customs brokers! Serious inquiries only, please.

I reserve the right to sell it locally. I do not want to ship, but if you can find a shipping to company to crate it and will pay all packing and shipping fees I will consider. I have great feedback. Please email me with any questions you may have. For sale on eBay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1963-Vintage-Vespa-Scooter-150cc-/231025803052?forcev4exp=true#v4-41

AutoWay's Japanese tire commercial has, ahem, gained lots of traction on the Internet and in media outlets for what AdWeek called the spot's "scarevertising." The video even comes with a health warning.

There is an automotive graveyard is filled with attempts to capture women buyers.

Quoted from Jalopnik user ATX211 -- This is how many a marketing board meeting might have gone down:

-"How do we market to women?"

- "Talk down to them."

"No that doesn't work. Tried it."

- "Make it pink?"

"Bingo"

- "Chicks dig everything pink. Probably make them want to drive."

"Don't call them chicks. Broads hate being called chicks."

The album that kicked off my obsession for collecting auto-inspired albums. This Phillips Academy release from 1961 was staged just two blocks from my Andover, MA boyhood home. But it merits honors from its campy sixties setup right down to the clothing store frequented by Miles Davis. Where is that 1958 Aston Martin DB MKIII today?

1928, Mercedes-Benz The "Woman in Red," by commercial artists Cucuel and Offelsmeyer, is one of the most striking advertising motifs of the Twenties. The women racing drivers of the "Roaring Twenties" were first-class. The Mercedes-Benz S model illustrated here, a development of the K (for "kurz" = short) sports version of the 630, was driven for example by Ernes Merck, wife of the pharmaceuticals manufacturer Wilhelm Merck. In the Klausen Pass Race of 1927 she was bested only by Rudolf Caracciola.

Model maker/collector and photographer Michael Paul Smith is a master at recreating incredibly accurate outdoor scenes using his extensive die-cast model car collection and forced perspective.

Mixing up miniature cars, detail items and buildings into a scene whose backdrop is the real world, he shoots the gorgeous miniature vistas of the town he has created and named “Elgin Park” — and he does it all with a cheap point-and-shoot.

Elgin Park is some 25 years in the making, as are Smith’s modeling and diorama photography skills. In an extensive interview with Fstoppers, he describes his tools, his process and the minute attention to detail that creating these scenes requires.

Ironically, Smith has diagnosed himself as “math challenged,” so when it comes to properly framing the forced perspective, he simply eyeballs it. Years of experience have led to an uncanny ability to do this right on the first shot, but if he doesn’t, he simply goes up and unceremoniously drags his table/models into the correct spot.
