Well my daily rider is a '96 Rat Black Vespa of Death.
I bought the Vespa scoot cheap as it had been rear ended, but it only had 1500km on it. I panel beated it back into shape, slapped on some flat black paint, white walls and painted the wheels red.
I was in the garage mucking around one day when I decided to grab the pillion pegs off my '04 R1 (It got a single seat cowl a while ago, so no need for them) and bolt them to the leg shield of the Vespa, giving me that "Chopper" look with a feet forward riding position.
It tends to bring smiles to anyone's face who see's me riding it around.
Otherwise if I need to drive I borrow my housemates '88 VL Holden Commodore while my Hillman Super Minx is off the road.
One thing about every one of the vehicles at my place (3 bikes, 1 scooter, 2 cars and a 4WD) is that they are all manual. We both hate auto's and like to to the gear changing ourselves.

Here's a pic of the Vespa:

And this is afterwards with the front guard removed and the R1 pillion pegs added:
