real style.. normal people know when they hear the term "aussie moke" you are referring a moke that is not a proper moke


if you are able to stick to facts and tell us what part of the above features of a moke that is not found on a proper moke feel free to respond
So you have done some research FINALLY !!!!

At least you didn't finish your usual rant of BS with "i am correct as usual"

As far as your question EVERYTHING. In fact later model Australian Mokes are one of my favorites.

Most personalized signs are better when the sentence "Go F yourself" is added at the end.

It's another day in paradise, Go F yourself.   It's five o clock somewhere, go F yourself.

The OP wasn't/isn't trying to be humourous. Apparently he's serious.

For sure Al!

Also, I don't get the "high seats" bit. The steel pans in an English Moke ride WAY higher than the suspension seats in my Australian..

Maybe the OP is "high" on something else not related to Mokes...

What is what meant?

Define normal for all us mere mortals in Jim's world.

Again before hitting the keyboard do your homework you are not correct as per usual.

Normal people know what is what meant with the term Aussie Moke so I stand correct, as usual.

2. Wheels too too big

3. Tires too big, to fit into the wheels that are too big

4. Goofy top 

5. Even goofier side curtains... If you want to drive a moke with side curtains your Moke should be taken away from you.. what do you want next, a heater in your Moke or intermittent wipers?

6. Mirrors, giant mirrors and in wrong location

7. Stupid bars, whatever they are called on front of Moke, sort of like some sort of battering  ram

8. Terrible looking tail lights

9. Usually come "tarted up"/ "gussied up"

and lastly, 10. not made in England

There you go, fine list if I can say. 

p.s. note to Al. if you drove over me with a real Moke with the proper 10 inch wheels it would be maybe a tad more difficult to actually get over me
You should do some research on Australian Mokes before hitting the keyboard regarding 1, 2, 3, 6, 7 and 8.
Not all Australian Mokes are created equal.

Do folks that like Aussie Mokes also like MGBs, you know, the ones with the big black rubber bumper covers?
