We are fortunate and have the Moke weather here in Florida for Moking. We drove to a CMU event towing a camper trailer i think Erwin Tn and left early on the Sunday morning to go Moken around Florida with the temp at 36 degrees in Erwin as long as you are wrapped up it is fine even the wifey handled it, total miles over 10 days was 2800 elevation was sea level to 6200 feet only problem on the whole trip was a new fuel filter clog.
I am actually more comfortable in the Moke than any of the other Mini's and yes the Moke would be the last Mini to go if i had to sell them off.

I may just have to consider that green Moke.

I kind of regret having sold my white one, but the opportunity for the Mini Marcos and the offer for my white one were to good to pass up.

Unfortunately, I have learned from the Mini Marcos that the classic "arms extended" sports car driving position does not work well for me - bad shoulders.

You gonna put a little more motor in it? I'd be happy to build you something fun.... 77.gif

What will you ask for the Marcos?

Hmm, my shoulders are just fine. But I'm not trading you my Moke for the Marcos :)

The Marcos would not be cheap - probably would list north of $27K.

The contacts that I found it through may still have leads to folks with "deep pockets" that I snatched if out from under back in May.  I'm waiting to hear what they say.

I already have a regular Mini obtained, but may still consider the green Moke.

Cool, then you'll have a "regular" car for those times when the weather isn't too co-operative and the Moke for when it is! 77.gif

I guess that would be easier than listing it on BaT, but I wonder where you might get the most return on your investment?

That is kind of the intent or plan.

I did get in touch with the seller and got some more information to consider.

I decided to pass on it though.

Too much money, or another re-shell waiting to happen? Or both?
