Freds next project
« on: November 25, 2010, 09:45:35 PM »
Seem's Fred has the Moke disease real bad as he's picked up another project.
The landlord of the factory where he works has had this moke for a while
and offered it to Fred at a good price so Fred snapped it up.

It's a genuine 1979 Californian 1275, missing a few bits like cali bars, seats, roof etc
but it has the good bits, 1275 and disc brakes ;D.

It also has a bit of rust as you can see but Fred should be able to sort that out.

There is apparantly a bit of a story behind this moke in that one of it's previous owners
was involved in a well publicized murder.  I think Fred said the landlord brought it off a policeman
so weather the cop was involed in the murder or managed to buy the moke from the victim or the accused
we don't know at this stage, but if anyone can help that would be good.
The moke also has some badges and stickers from the MOA so we'll try and find you the owner was at that stage.

I love a murder mystery, was it a matter of:-
- " We needed a cool getaway car"
- " Lets use the Moke, no one will notice us"
- " Gee's, they don't need it any more"
Another nice find for you Moe, nice work.
 Thanks for keeping us updated.
Cheers

I think that would be Kay Nesbit, http://www.abc.net.au/gnt/people/Transcripts/s952984.htm

I remember her, shot it the face at point blank,
some how she survived, she pops up on tele now and again pushing for victim of crime rights
A great women and an inspiration.
Seems she lives in Gippsland too ;D

So was she the MOA member?

Yeah Kay lives in my area, her son plays golf at the club I play at.
I'll try to get some info next time I see him.
As Moe said, she's a real inspiration and does a lot of valuable community work.

Not that I have come across and any little connection like that to the MOA and the story would have been told to every new members for the next 40 years.

Perhaps the cop was the member or someone before Kay.

I think that I is great the insperation what Kay does for the Community .
But the story is like playing Chiese wispers when you where a Child when a story is pased on it alway gets an other twist to it
If any other MOA members have more info I would love to hear from them .
My intentions is to start  restoring  the Moke  over Christmas and new year
