Stacey wants a Cento
Word had reached Lambrettista Towers that mod cook Stacey Stewart, (you know, the girl with the beehive that was on Masterchef), is in the market for a Lambretta Cento.
EDIT: If you like the look of that Series 2 (it’s clearly a 3!) Stacey is sitting on, you’re in luck. She’s flogging on eBay. It’s an Italian, 1968 LI 125, recently restored, in metallic silver and midnight blue. Good to go and need no work. It’s in Newcastle, and there are a load more pics and information on eBay, here.
UPDATE: Stacie’s sold her Series 3 (dur, I wrote Series 2 before!), and got herself a J125 Starstream. Nice one Stacie.
TC on an LD
Love this picture of the late, great Tony Curtis on an LD. That’s the actor Tony Curtis, not my good mate, the equally great, and thankfully not late Tony Curtis.
Who incidentally is also a Lambretta aficionado. Anyway, I’m getting sidetracked here, the main pint of this post is to find out what movie this picture was from… any film buff Lambretta lovers out there?
Answers in a postcard, or, and this is probably easier, in the comments.
Checking the IMCDB (Internet Movie Car Database) I’ve found the film this still is from – a movie called “Paris – When It SIzzles” from 1964, a film I can’t believe I haven’t seen as it stars, amongst others; William Holden, Audrey Hepburn, Noël Coward, Marlene Dietrich and Frank Sinatra. It’s on my ‘to watch’ list!
Rainer from Epic Studio (the guys behind the scooter screenprints in the previous post) sent me some pictures he’s taken of him riding this mean looking liquid cooled GP… send us some more info on that scoot Rainer!
Digging these limited edition screenprints featuring classic scooters. Available for €40 + shipping from Epic Studio.

Caterham 7 Lambretta Special Edition
I’m a bit late to the party with this one, but here goes. As branding tie-ins goes, I don’t think Lambretta has always got it right over the last few years, but occasionally, they hit the nail right on the head.

Good toon too.
