Hi,

in today's issue of Car Guide there is an article on a private collection car museum in Thailand and looking down the row with minis there is a red  Moke showing a bit of front guard.

And a little bit of googling comes up with another picture showing there are two Mokes, a Little wheeler and a Cagiva, https://metrocebu.news/2017/05/7-free-things-to-do-in-bangkok/

And if you want to get a feel for how big the collection is try this link, https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/beyond-borders/177945-pics-jesada-technik-museum-bangkok-thailand.html  And that doesn't show the aircraft and buses that are outside. :)

1/4 pint needed to get a roadworthy on his new (used) Triton and the Mechanic used to hang around in the same groups as my Kids when they were all at high school and knew I was into Mokes.
Just so happened his Boss had stalled on his Moke project due to being unable to find a few parts. He led me into the workshop and there it was, parked up against the wall. Been sitting there for quite a long time apparently. Turned out I was able to help him with a few said bits and all of a sudden his enthusiasm to finish has returned  ;D




I said to him that the front suspension was collapsed and he told me that one day it just went BANG and dropped  :o, so I also gave him another front trumpet, guaranteed this is what had collapsed.
He is looking forward to getting it on the road soon and seeing how much fun he can have in the warmer months  ;D

Hi,

looks like he got a Choke windscreen frame and chopped it to fit. :)

Don't know Terry, seems he hasn't accessed some of the info we have available to us here.
I get the feeling and think he is getting ready to move onto his next project as well.
There may be a nice MOKE on the market pretty soon  8)

Hi,

when i first got involved with Mokes back in 1990 there was a few stories going around about Lou Richards(footy celeb) having a moke and until the other day i had never seen it, and even now it is just a glimpse. :)

Hi,

this Moke was on display at the Geelong Truck Show 2019. It looks somewhat familiar, I am pretty sure it has been at an IMD or two.

I too have trouble uploading pics now, i have no idea what changed, i use the same camera, i even tried resizing but no luck.

Spotted a few Mokes lately, 17 of them in various stages of decay/decline at the one place, weird quite a few have hard tops fitted.

Was at a swap meet  yesterday and a guy there had a rolling shell "race" moke, well ex race is probably a better description.  It seemed to be completely rust free having spent most/all of its life as a race car BUT it certainly hasn't escaped Nik Blackhursts favorite tool, the good old angle grinder.  All the good race bits had been removed which the owner has replaced with std parts.  Strange though it has the removable grill but little wheels, could that be right?  Maybe they use the small wheels to lower the C of G for racing?

Hi,

this is a couple of Moke Owners spotted lurking around the carpark in Hobart's Salamanca Market last weekend.

Saw this one in Dunkeld.
From a little corner of the dashcam:

It had a nudge bar on the back as well as the front.
