the Mini Moke - # 213



Do you remember the Mini Moke?
I bet Richard of Zurich does! Do look at his Porsche.

  1. Of course I remember! Perhaps more frequently seen on the Mediterranean coastline than in the London area?

  3. Wow. I never saw anything quite like this before. It reminds me of a golf cart that somebody souped-up. I did also go see the Porsche. Nice photography and I appreciate it. I guess, judging from Peter's comment, that this is a real vehicle and not something home made.

  4. Interesting vehicle and great shots.

    Thanks for visiting my NorthBayPhoto blog. As for the grey skys in my blog header - the shot was taken just a large thunderstorm was ending in the area.

  5. I've seen a few in my time. They were famously used in the TV series The Prisoner as taxis. They were painted white, with a striped canvas roof & the penny farthing motif on the bonnet. This one is about a 1987 model & looks more sporty. Not very good in wet weather though!

  6. I saw your comments on the Herm├Ęs horse on ming's blog. Please note that it has nothing to do with Napoleon. I added some info about this horse on his blog, which you can read if you are interested.

  7. Oh my, I hired one of these on the island of La Gomera about a decade ago. Probably a death trap on that island's steep, narrow roads, but it was fun!
