My Scootering Heritage
Finally got my mother to dig out some old photographs of my dad & his scooters. The little guy is me, the scoot is a circa 1960 Vespa assembled in the UK by Douglas. Up until their first Ford Cortina, a Vespa was my parent's sole transportation. My father claims that this one was never very reliable & he was not really sorry to see it go. According to my mother, the addition of the windshield protected the driver and circulated the wind back around to batter the passenger half to death!
