Mireille Mathieu

Another lovely that I've been hung up on for years is the great Mireille Mathieu. She's sexy and that's that.

It's always a treat finding her LP's as they always have at least one steller track. And the way she rolls when she sings. She has a commanding and digified presence in her songs. Also the artwork is ace as they always have some killer photo of her. If the record jacket didn't have a record I would be more than satisfied with just her picture on the cover

Eddie Wuz 'Ere : The Grimstead Special

Ever since I started read Scootering International I've been totally blown away with the Gran Sport in the above picture ad that was restored by Gran Sport Scooters in the UK. It's really the most beautiful scooter I've ever seen in my life!

Shocking, really! There is something about this Restoration that seems to just capture it all and then some. This scooter is Mod, Sex & Passion all wrapped one freaking drop dead gorgeous Bike. The haunting yellow fog lights, the Florida bars, the silly Moon eyes...I can go forever on how poetic this Vespa is.

I plan to restore my GS exactly like this bike. Truely an inspiration.
