Hello. Just wondered if you ever finished the catalina moke your son and you were working on? Do you know the rental number that was on it?
If you still have it and want to sell it, let me know ?

Thank You
Scott

I used to see the moke rental cars all around Catalina in the early 1970's.This one has been redone nicely.
What is the purpose of the emblem on the hood that says " Catalina Island Patrol" ? Don't remember seeing cars with that emblem on it.

Get all your photos and stuff together for both stories and I'll come down with a tape recorder and we'll get it all written down.

I have recently received a load of OZ Californian Moke take offs. 13 inch wheels and tires a heater rubber spats and
mud flaps. Dash speedo check with me if any of this is interesting.

Why don't you just retain someone to build you the Moke of your dreams? Steve (CTR)

The equivalent to Catalina Island is Magnetic Island in Australia. The spousal unit and I were there a few years ago and we rented a Moke. The owner of the B&B we stayed in was maintaining them which he said was not easy. I told the rental agency to contact me if they were disposing of them ... but never heard back. At the time there were about 1/2 dozen Mokes on Magnetic Island. We saw a few other Mokes on the highway and streets in our 16K trip around 1/2 of Australia.

Larry, It appears to be a mint green Moke with rental #47 on the windshield.

Hello DR_MINI  I am having trouble navigating this website and message board. I hoping you are seeing my messages.

I posted a picture of the Catalina Moke with the plate WXR 276. I hope you see it. Let me know if you have the plate and are willing to
sell it?

My email is in my profile to contact me.

Here is the picture.

Thanks,
Scott

I can't email the picture because your profile is disabled. Try enable if you want.

I will try a larger picture on this site if I can figure out how to do it.

@72moke I asked if you can email me the photo of the moke. I can't see any details in your profile picture as it's about 1/2" x 1/2". My email is in my profile thanks.

Hello DR. Mini. Besides the license plate WXR 276, would you happened to have any pictures of the moke when you got it?
The Moke in my thumb nail picture is the actual moke, see the license plate.
Thanks again. Scott

Thanks Jim, I appreciate it. I have amassed piles and piles of facts and info for my story. Most importantly to me is not the actions I took to help our Country, or what I did and saw, but the battle that has ensued for almost 11 years now of me fighting NY to just be treated like a human being as I deserve for what I did. Especially when your own ex NYPD lawyer who used to represent me in court (fired his ass) steals 20k from you thru falsified billing for 3 years he wasn't my attorney and the court didn't even look at the bills, just paid him. Now that is the real story I think. Plenty more where that came from. @72Moke just email me the pics Email is in my account info.

Larry, every time you tell your story about 9/11, you evoke a charged emotion in me. You are a real hero. I saw the windows blow out , just before the 1st tower fell. When others ran away, you ran into the inferno. Now we know a toxic vortex. Another toxic element was mercury vapor from all those fluorescent lamps. 

Writing is very hard. Start by getting a note book and writing snippets of thought into it. No censoring, that will come later. Do it.

Jim

Thanks That would be nice to Have WXR 276 Back. I would upload a picture of the moke with the plate, but I don't know how. I am not very good at computers.
Thanks again, Scott

Thanks Malcolm, I'm still around. I need to do two stories. One about the Mokes, that's a short story very interesting though and the 5000 page one about my 9/11 rescue and the trials and tribulations following. @72MOKE I have WXR 278 right here in my hand, I have to dig thru my stuff and see where the others got to. I took most of them off the mokes before I sold them. Could possibly be on one of the 3 I still have here. I'll let you know.

Hi. If you really have this license plate WXR 276, I sure would like to buy it from you. I have a lot of fond memories of that Moke on Catalina Island. Please let me know. Thanks very much.
