Many years ago I made a trip to the Island just to see the Mokes. They looked in pretty good shape then. Tried to talk to the rental owner. Not interested, so I walked around back and talked to the guy who kept them running. He said the biggest problem they had that kept him busy was having to rebuild gearboxes. Remember, no syncho on 1st gear and most people who rented didn't know how to drive anything but the Buick with the automatic at home, and trying to learn to drive on a 3-syncro Mini usually didn't go well. Eventually, he just locked out 1st gear and told renters they were three speeds.

The yellow Moke came from a lady in Windsor Ont (Detroit) who had to sell it on because of her arthritis

I believe she bought it from Larry H

I sold it to George in April of 2008, just before my Big Tim heart attack

Although my pic shows the yellow Moke in the snow, it was just coming back from the boot shop, never winter driven,

That is a good article. Bespoke Mokes in the uk is restoring more of the Catalina Moke fleet, I think.  //www.bespokemokes.co.uk/

Check out the blue Moke on the Mini Mania "cars for sale" section

A pretty good history of the Catalina Mokes

It was a fascinating story of how the Mokes were repatriated from the island off of Los Angeles

Larry Holloway, Tommy Schnaar all names from the past

In fact the one pic shows all of the Mokes together in a parking lot
