Vespas attack Manila
Earlier this month, the Philippines’ capital, Manila, was attacked by Vespas. I wasn’t there, but Raffy Calma, a fan of the Scootin’ Old Skool Facebook page was, and he took a bunch of pictures. Hit the jump to see a few.
As you can see, it isn’t just Vespas… there are Lambrettas in the Philippines.
The Vespas ran the gamut from stock modern ones to seriously customized old-skool scoots.
No matter where in the world you go, a large group of scooters will attract the curious.
Manila is a large, modern city. In fact, whenever I see pictures, I find myself thinking, “the place looks a lot like L.A.”
And like most modern cities, Manila’s traffic can be rather congested. As you can see, Jeepneys haven’t completely disappeared from Manila’s streets.
I like the license plates. Washington’s used to look like that (well, except for the notches in the upper corners), before the not-Mount Rainier plates came along in 1987.
Raffy has many more pix, which you can see here. (You will need to be logged into Facebook)
