How to Get Around: Vintage Transportation


If you can’t walk to where you need to be, then you’re going to have to use some sort of transportation. And if you love all things vintage, like we do at Rubber Soul Vintage in San Diego, then it’s exciting to think about the many vintage transportation options.

For places that aren’t too far, there’s always the cruiser bicycle. Just the look of the cruiser screams “vintage summertime” like nothing else. You can even outfit your bike with a wicker basket, bell, pannier, and funky seat.

When you need to get a little further and love the feeling of the wind in your hair, there are plenty of vintage inspired scooters and vespas to choose from. There’s even one company called All Vespa which restores vintage scooters that are then sold to the public!

And if you’ve got the extra income to spend on a vintage automobile, that can really amp up your vintage style. Wether the car is a 1926 box saloon, an old VW bus, or a Ford Capri– which Katy Perry gave to Russell Brand for a wedding gift- any vintage car has a cool factor.

  1. Absolutely love it! Just saw a vintage VW on the road the other day. And the vintage Vespa that you posted is a pure classic.

    They just don’t make them like that anymore. Thanks for posting!
