Now, who doesn’t love a green Vespa? [Seen on Spadina Ave. at Harbord]

I love the detail on this model – namely the sticker in back; it reminds me a bit of what the Jacobins and the Assemblée Générale of the French Revolution would wear on their waistcoats and jackets. Though instead of green in the outer ring, they wore blue, of course. But we can ignore that little inconsistency…

When in NYC a few months ago, a friend from NYU pointed to a loud red Vespa on the street and said, “That’s Mario Batali’s.” So… You’re right, everybody does love a good Vespa, be it green, red, or PURPLE.
