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.

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.

Hello. You think you have that license plate WXR 276 ? If this is right, I would love to buy it from you. I have a lot of fond memories in that moke as a child.

You should write a book on the Catalina Mokes rescue.
Good to hear from you Larry.

Well I believe I still have that license plate and registration. I am the guy that rescued the Catalina Mokes. Tom actually had little to do with getting them off the island, he made a deal to buy some off me and accepted delivery when he met me in Long beach, but wasn't part of the actual rescue mission. I should write the story, before I forget and it's lost as just an urban legend. How I moved 57 Mokes in 3 days , most didn't run and many had to be reassembled so they at least rolled, towing them with an old sling wrecker sometimes 3 at a time lashed together, round the clock. Moving them from lot to lot down to the loading dock where the barge would dock so we could load them. A wild story, pre cell phone, pre internet, it involved a helicopter, a train a forklift and a big truck, a grand mission to save them. Little did I know it was just a training exercise for my time spent almost 20 years ago now rescuing the last survivors and recovering others loved ones at the WTC on 9/11. Unlike the happy end of the Moke story I'm sad to say that I am still in court fighting NY over my care and out of pockets losses and will still be in Court next year on the threshold of the 20th anniversary. I still have 3 of the Catalina Mokes left, the rest went back to the UK motherland courtesy of a deal with M parts. Those last 3 are a reminder to me what you can do if you put your mind to it...….., everyone told me it wasn't possible to move them all in one go. They were wrong. I heard that same sentiment on 9/11 when I got turned back for the 3rd time. I was told "You'll never get there to help", wrong again. Ha Ha Ha never say never.

I tried to post pictures but for some reason it won't work. If you go to the website BRING A TRAILER, My Moke is The yellow 1972 Mini Moke with the blue top. It was up for auction in 2016. The man who won the auction sold it to me in 2020. You can even just type in 1972 Leyland Mini Moke and it's all over the internet. Thanks.

My parents rented one that was WXR 276, I am sure it's long gone.

Thanks, Scott
Hi Scott, would enjoy seeing some pic's of your Moke if you could.

Hello. Saw your article on The Mini Moke from Catalina Island you are restoring. Did you ever sell it? I am in search of Catalina Island Moke.
Thanks, Scott

Hello again, just saw the other post of the green Moke. Did you paint the yellow Moke? If yes, did you do it yourself? Looks nice.

My apologies to Tommy Scrhramm, l always want to call him Tommy Schnaar for whatever reason

He grabbed a ride with my wife back from Magog Que back in 20004 to Ontario, in those days he was driving small camper vans from a factory in Kitchener , Ontario all over the USA, drive one, tow one. That's when l saw Tommy wearing his anti snoring mask, hilarious

Not to mention his giant St Bernard dog he brought to MM East in Columbus OH in his mini van Memories........

Sold my Catalina Island Moke last year on BaT which was one of Schramm's.

My son has one of the Catalina Island Mokes with black plate, this one too was one of Schramm's, has all body panels to restore it. We are working on it and may be ready to sell as a completed shell next year. Probably not going to do it to completion so someone can finish it to their color, level of finish, etc.
