Piccolo Grande: Stretch-limo Vespa?
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em seems to be the latest modus operandi. Aimed square at the blingy-glam heart of the public at large, a custom Vespa "stretch limo" has been whipped up to generate publicity. Vespa calls it a family car on two wheels and intimates that children will dig going to school on it. Maybe the going part. Other glitterati-friendly uses abound: be the designated driver and still park outside the front door (didn't know that was a problem?), make friends and drag them home, all in one swift, conjoined-twin-motorscooter motion. The reality is more likely that this thing is a dog to ride. It's akin to surfing a pipeline while standing at the very front of your longboard on your tiptoes. Now that would certainly get your attention, now wouldn't it? Exactly. Hat tip to Robin!
