We Moke guys are good guys and Hrach was one of the best. We also can be a little different. Hrach certainly was!
I met him the first time in 1984 in Denver at the first East Meets West Mini Meeting. There were a lot of Mokes there with several of them driving all the way instead of being towed. I thought my drive from Seattle would likely make mine the longest drive of the Mokes, at least. The I got talking the Hrach and learned how far he had come.

Nor had I. One could make an argument that there isn't much new history to be had about cars that haven't been made in nearly 20 years. But there's so many great stories, nobody could possibly have heard them all!

Seems "niceness" is a common trait with people associated with Classic Minis. I don't know about some of these Moke guys tho!
