Nice write up Vicki  8)

Hopefully raises awareness among the locals.

Not sure what to make of this line in the article though...

Quote
In theory, because he was never tried, Alan said his Moke could hit a top speed of 150 kilometres per hour

A typo, or is it just a cocky statement that the police couldn't prove anything?  ;)  ;D

Yeah Newie,

Of course it’s not been tried in his Moke ::) ...but he says he was referring to my Moke when he made that remark anyway, and naturally it was theoretically speaking of course. ;)

Hi,

who supplied the history stuff under 'Moke Spare parts'?

there was a lot more than 26,000 Mokes made in Australia.

The same info was contained in the first South Coast Register article referred to at the top of this thread last August and seems to have come from Wickedpedia:

Hi Newie

I seem to remember a trip last year, where a white moke showed a top speed on their Garmin GPS at 135 kph with 2 people in the car towing a trailer on a dirt road. I became a passenger in another well known grey moke,  with a pop up tent trailer. His Garmin read top speed 145 kph. IMHO Mazy is a bit quicker   :o :D

Alan.

All of the pommie car shows seem to have an endless supply of abandoned airfields and the like to test their cars out on. If only we weren't so regulated these days, it would be a great addition to the next Round Up activities to line a few up a few old rev heads ike you, Stewy and Rod(MMD), plus some young blood like Andy and Ben from the Darling Downs and a few others and see who has the quickest results on an off road track.

Don't know why those Mokers come to mind....  ::). Admittedly, I think Stewy and Rod would need to shed a few kilos (off their Mokes of course  ;) ) if they were to keep up with Mazy.

As it is of course, we have to satisfy ourselves with under 100kph legal trials up the dual lane highway over the Moonbi ranges  :)

Not really an issue for those of us with 998 bush basher Mokes - we're normally just happy if we can stick at 100  ;D. A good part of the reason why the Round Up is focused on enjoying the back roads  :)

Now that sounds like fun, I'd love to see what mine would do as its top speed I know it can break the speed limit by a good bit in 3rd gear, and it has a five speed. I'm guessing if someone where brave enough to pilot it, it might hit 200+km.

Let me know when you organise it Newie  ;) ;D
Al

I'm getting closer 150 BHP Vtec moke😁

Budget... I didn't know anything about a budget... I must have missed that memo.

And today yet another article in the local Shoalhaven newspaper. The reporter came along to our morning muster in the caravan park just prior to us taking off for the day yesterday.

The display day on Saturday morning saw around 50 Mokes (not sure on the final figure) plus a few Minis and a lone Torana park up in Voyager Park on the foreshore at Huskisson, with glorious views of Callala Beach and Jervis Bay behind us. The sun shone and it was a spectacular showcase of our Mokes. It is a popular place for people to walk through at any time but they sure had good views this time 8) ;D

There are lots of pics in this article:
