The badass Hello Kitty Vespa

hello kitty vespaCheck out what Peter Caschera, the Vespa guy in Schenectady, has up for sale now: a new Vespa S150 with custom Hello Kitty paint job.

But Peter doesn't want you to get the wrong impression -- from the listing on Craigslist:

OK, let me start off by saying this Vespa is only available for purchase by the manliest of men (or women). My friend, if it was possible for a vehicle to sprout chest hair and a five o'clock shadow, this Vespa would look like Tom Selleck. It is just that manly.

It was never intended to drive to the mall so you can pick up that adorable shirt at Abercrombie & Fitch that you had your eye on. It wasn't meant to transport you to yoga class or Linens & Things. No, that's what your Prius is for. If that's the kind of Vehicle you're looking for, then just do us all a favor and stop reading right now. I mean it. Just stop.

This piece of macho machinery could be yours for $6150.

I WANT IT. If anyone dares to outbid me on it, you better be prepared to sleep with one eye open. FOREVER.

With all due respect to the Hello Kitty Vespa, that's some plagarism, right there: http://jalopnik.com/5100561/nissan-ninja-hauler-kicks-ass-and-takes-names-silently
