Apparently, someone has abandoned a Vespa on a side-street in front of a brownstone in Prospect Heights... The limbs of the bushes are actually growing through the handlebars, there's a rusty propane tank sitting on the floorboard and the tires are rotted out.
I'm toying with the idea of "rescuing" it... Hmm...

Grab it! Have it away on its toes! Make off with it. Bring it on home.

the engine is seized and the cost would be more than the cost for a previously owned vespa, but then again it is older and pretty.

not true, jack. i could get it restored for under $1000, and in good shape, it might sell for closer to $3000. a simple engine overhaul (i could do the rest myself) would only be a couple of hundred bucks. old vespas are classics, man.
