No prob  ;)
Must be hard work to be visiting some of the premier Mini and Moke Gatherings around the world  ;) ;D
Thanks for sharing with us all though  ;D

There are another 20 or so pics loaded for you. Whats with all the Scamps, are they a pretty dedicated group, or were there heaps of them over there in England?

Nowhere near up to the level of Saharadust’s adventures, in little old Tassie we had our gathering and drive to commemorate the advent of the Mini. Amongst the 14 Minis there, I did notice that the Moke was very well represented. 5 out of 14 vehicles, with that I calculate that 1/3 of all active Minis in Northern Tasmania are Mokes.

Also have a still image to go with the You Tube clip.

One of the early Launceston City Park mokes that has been in hiding for the past 10+ years is again carrying passengers. Not in City Park but at the new NRMA caravan park in St Helens. Restoration (stage 1) was completed by my son Greg so that it could be operational for the parks 1st birthday last weekend. It was a fun project for the park owner Jason who also owns another moke.


Some ideas are being explored for this caravan park to be Moke Central for Mokin Downunder 2021 on last weekend of October and then move onto Hobart for the 1st weekend in November to coincide with MiniFest which also caters for Mokes with about 10 (unfortunately Mute was hiding at home) there yesterday.

We have just had a few great days Moking around the Donald area on the 3 peaks tour with the MOA and afterwards ended up at Yarra Glen  :).
So we decided to make our way into St Kilda in the Moke.
Just got off East Link and stopped at some lights on Hoddle St when we spotted this great looking Moke  8).
I liked the way the Bimini hood rolled forward and strapped down on the windscreen frame. Very unique  8)

Hi,

and a high back seat with no headrest, that should snap the head of cleanly in an accident. :)

The old guy that owns/owned that business used to get around with an original 3 digit Vic number plate and kept transferring around his cars. I remember seeing it on 70's Porsche when I used to work nearby.

I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.

A nice MOKE Spotted in a small beach town on the mid Nth Coast of NSW.
A little unusual though, the side fill of a 1980+ Moke but with the short windscreen frame, perspex side screens and the steering column of a '70's Moke.

I have one more, but it doesnt give us any more detail than this one, its a really nice Moke.
The owner should be very proud of what he has.
