With this, I'm hoping to start fleshing out a template for what a model-year-specific page should look like.

Been fleshing this one out a bit. I've added the color lineup for each model year, and some comparison to the GT200. Still need to add comprehensive specs and flesh out the overview a bit.

I've added the specifications as per Vespa USA. I hope that's OK with you.

Totally!

Makes me think we really need support for tables, though.

Yes, that would probably be a good idea, especially for things such as specs.

I list-ified the specs. Long term, you've definitely got me thinking about tables.

Huge improvement with your list, that is much easier to read now. Looking at how you did it now too, I have much to learn about this bulletin board stuff. I didn't know that there was that much "code" that one could use to make stuff look good. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

Well, to be fair, some of it has only existed for a few days...

That table is elegant in its simplicity. What determines the column width, is it just the largest entry?

Yep. I had to put a line break in the bit about the QUASAR engine so that it wouldn't make the table huge.

Ah OK, so by just hitting return it gives you that line break and keeps it tidy and makes that entry two line instead of one. Very elegant, it is very useful to be able to hit edit and see how things have been done.

Note to self, or future editor: it would probably be reasonable to break out the exhaust problem section of this article into a dedicated article of its own, and expand that new article with pictures of the various exhausts, the clamps, and burned-out gaskets, and so on. The GTS exhaust issue is a pretty big issue, and we could easily dedicate an exhaustive page to the subject. We could then summarize briefly the exhaust problem in this GTS model article, and point to the dedicated page.
