The Ultimate Back-up Vehicle? 1943 VW Schwimmwagen

VW SchwimmwaggenSo it’s not a Lambretta, not even a scooter. But it is cool as… well it’s just cool. The futures retro, low tech, and amphibious dude. You could probably bung an Lammie in the back, push comes to shove. Genuine, restored WWII Schwimmwagen, also the perfect escape vehicle for the forthcoming zombie apocalypse. Yours for only (cough) $150,000. Here; on Old Bug

Lambretta’s and Vespa’s in Vietnam

It’s been a while since I posted, ant to be honest, a couple of weeks since I’ve ridden my scoot. Spanners out at the weekend, fitting a new kickstart assembly. Wish me luck.

Here’s a nice little feature from a Vietnamese TV show on the scootering/restoration scene. Unless you can speak Vietnamese, forget the commentary, and just enjoy the movie. It kicks off with some film of Saigon back in the day, a very cosmopolitan and sophisticated place by the look of it. It then goes on to feature the work of the Saigon Scooter Centre, and some very nice Lammies. A very nice S2 at 7:18!

After about 8 mins there’s some nice footage of VW bug and bus restos, stick with it if your a fan of the Vespa Ape, as the program finishes on that. Nice.
