Hi,

On a sort of related note, the Blue Moke in the shed with Rod and Faye is about to be stripped down and rebuilt with a 1980 shell I sold the owner last night. Apparently the piece of alloy on the side boxes isn't there for show, it is hold the Moke together as it has bad bad cancer.

And it was great to catch up with Rod and Faye, the 1st time since we left Mokefest, which is why the locals did see much of me on the Saturday arvo I was there.

Was this the glassware award Spicey or was there another one too? Very well done to all who entered.

Sounds like a great show.

Terry, that moke had a dirty big square steel handle mounted vertically near the handbrake. Do you know what that was for ?  Sure looked odd.

Sus,

It is a hydraulic handbrake to operate the rear brake when used in Motorkhanas.

Having driven that Moke at Hay once years ago, I can assure you it is very effective.  :)

The handle is removable to avoid temptation to use the brake on the road.

Hi all,

Would love to post a very rare photo of a clean cabsav - but still trying to work out how to do that!

The Mini Show was good/interesting/fun. and sus - you really should have said Hi! We can stop talking for a minute or two at a time! LOL

It was great to see Faye and Rod and even better to see them get a trophy, interesting to talk to Adam (blue moke) and hey - i could have told you all what the stick thingy was  if i had of been on line earlier - WHY - caus i asked him!!!

Had a fun time catching up with Jeff (Joff), Carolyn, Eddie, Craig, Jayne, Ron, Molly, Ruby, Hayden (Spudie), Teresa, Ruby and many others! Old friends and new! 

Would love to see a whole heap more mokes next time though - lets take over the mini show!!!

Thanks Tim for spotting the correct Rod, the one with the blonde hair not the old guy with the white hair as suggested by Moemoke.
