“HONEY, GUESS WHAT I JUST BOUGHT?” (May, 1980)
“HONEY, GUESS WHAT I JUST BOUGHT?”
Little by little, across America, people are bringing home a delightful accompaniment to the automobile. The Vespa scooter.
What is this two-wheel appeal? It’s a totally unique kind of transportation that combines comfort, convenience and a stylish sense of sophistication.
The result is a vehicle with a low center of gravity that you ride with your feet on the floor.
You’re protected by a welded, unitized body molded in graceful, almost voluptuous lines by Italian designers. Inside the top models lies an engine powerful enough for freeway driving and an automatic oil injection. There’s electronic ignition and hydraulic front and rear suspension—even a hidden spare tire.
Vespa scooters’ ingenuous blend of style and over 30 years of engineering excellence and experience give you an excitingly different feeling of control and maneuverability.
You’ll feel confident to know that more than 6 million Vespa scooters and 2 million Vespa mopeds have been sold so far and that Vespa offers a 12-month, unlimited mileage warranty.
When scooting along barely above a whisper, its 70-140 mpg consumption rating provides a true sense of value and efficiency. We urge you to see your Vespa dealer now to take a test drive. Look in the Yellow Pages or write us for nearest location. And see if your new Vespa scooter doesn’t surprise you as much as it will surprise your friends.
