TV MOKES
« on: September 04, 2008, 07:46:48 PM »
Was flicking TV channels, and saw a moke as I went skipping by.  Went back to channel, and saw Maroon/Dark Red moke with Qld Plates shown from rear.  Then went to another shot.  Missed noting the rego but looked as tho program was shot on Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast in Qld.

Some research tonight finds the following info on this program.  Does anyone on this forum know anything of the Moke/program.  Does it feature as a main vehicle of a character through the episodes?

Found  this write up on the programme.



"In exactly one minute my life will end," Taylor Fry declares at the start of this charming Australian children's show, which originally aired on Nine a few years ago. Cause of death? "Public humiliation."

Taylor (Marny Kennedy, pictured) is 11, the age most children stop worshipping their parents and start being ashamed of them. She is acutely aware of the effect on her reputation of her family's embarrassing business (The Underpant King), her down-at-heel house, her boy-mad older sister ... everything.

Her immediate problem is the entry of her mum (Rachel Blakely) and dad (Andrew Blackman) in the school's parent talent quest. Taylor decides she must be adopted and asks best friend Hector (Nicolas Dunn) to help organise a DNA test. A lab assistant is sympathetic: "My father took up jazz ballet at 43."

The show's creator and writer, the late Angela Webber, built a lively script around a good concept: most adolescents are in permanent paroxysms of embarrassment about their parents. Children who liked Round The Twist will feel at home.



I wonder if it is her parents Moke??  Is this the source of her embarrassment?

Could be! My husband was complaining the other day that he didnt like everyone staring at him all the time - I told him they're just jealous!

Me, I dont notice the stares, I'm used to it at work! (I get the impression it bugs some of the guys I work with tho!)

Tribal colours Aimee?   ;D

Maybe the Moke is not the reason people are staring at your husband - you just happen to be with him in the Moke.

Smokey may have a point though. Maybe you should do it in a fluro yellow or orange next time to go better with the Moke  ;D

Good on you for daring to be different  8) If I had enough hair to make it worthwhile, maybe I'd give it a go  ::)

Hi,

Pink hair on a woman is not that strange. I spent breakfast this morning in Wagga Wagga looking at a young guy, late teens , with shocking Pink hair, not just highlights, but the his head looked like those cheap Duster things you buy from an Infomercial in morning telly.

Could his head spin? I'm with tt92, I could dye my hair pink I suppose, but lets face it, back hair isn't cool no matter what.

Finally managed to get a shot of the Moke from the ABC TV show 'Mortified'
It is filmed in Tweed Heads so maybe some of the locals know of its story (Marty ;))
The moke seems to get a cameo in every episode but this is one of the better shots

1976 Moke(Scarlet) current project,
1974 Moke with Suzuki GTI motor (project),

Thanks for the follow up.  I am pleased I was right about the gold/sunshine coast area.  Tweed is close.  I was reading through some search material the other day and a request came in for a television shoot at Nepean, so I thought maybe I had it totally wrong.

http://moke.com.au/Forum/index.php?topic=252.0

I guess seeing it for about 3 seconds as the old man flicked towards the 5pm news, was pretty lucky.  I never got to see any more episodes.  Will have to keep an eye out.

This is kinda a TV moke cos i saw it on TV :P

I was watching 'Never Back Down' and at approx 16 minutes 30 seconds the lead character walks toward the house he wanders past a dark green moke parked in the driveway. I got most excited upon seeing it, cant make it out too well due to the lighting but yeah.

figured id share, sorry if there was a more appropriate place to post this or if im double posting.

Nah, good call and right place, if there is such a thing.  Had a mate from the Darling Downs ring me the other day saying that on Funny Home Videos, a moke was featured with the Easter Bunny Falling out of the back.  Did not get to see it tho.  Anyone?
