Aren't Italian people the best? With their food, culture and incessant perseverance, not to mention their cars and Vespas!
One of the things that immediately spark the image of the boot country is definitely the Vespa, a motorbike that is a common occurrence on the streets of Italy. One of the not-so-well-knows variations of the Vespa has to be the Piaggio Ape car, which is basically the motorcycle but with two rear wheels and a flat-bed in the back, given to war-stricken Italians to help rebuild the country's economy. It is safe to say that they are not as tough as most of the other commercial vehicles, a fact which is proven in the video above!
Looks like this Piaggio Ape 50 had a few too many pieces of wood loaded onto its bed! Watch as the driver makes a few bold attempts to climb up a steep hill... right up until it totally backfires on him!
