As a kid we had a 6 foot King snake we kept in the barn to control mice. We could catch him any time we wanted to.
Wrap that around your arm and walk into the ice cream store. You get to go to the head of the line if you can get
the lady to serve you. Steve (CTR)

PS I'm sorry if I'm messing with your tread.

Is there any chance you could get a dog a wife or a pet snake? It's clear just like our friend Tony you must be
starving for attention. I do feel sorry for you if that helps. Steve (CTR)

where is that moke with drive trains on both ends of the vehicle.

one more thing.. instead of just bashing my comments on how LH drive Minis are not right.. I have driven both LH and RH drive Minis.

LH drive Minis

- do not look right
- do not feel right
- do not drive right
- do not present right
- do not represent the UK right

they look unnatural, like something was forced that does not belong there.

There is a middle of the car option, a Wanderer tandum built by one of the companies that make up the four rings of Audi, and probably others as well 
On the Moke question, did the mokes shown to the US Army come in first? Were the shipped back or used as artillery practice, or?

Well said Steve.

Having a LH Drive Moke is akin to flying the German flag at 110 Downing Street which if Jeremy Corbyn had won it just may have happened.

Give me strength.  So then how do you explain the front subframe having holes of mount the LHD steering rack?  And, the body shell of Mini and Moke have holes to accommodate both RHD and LHD.
That shoots holes in that argument!  Ho ho ho!

Frankly, your opinions about "what a british car should be" I find to be more of an annoyance than anything else.

Now to the point of this thread - I think my 64 Moke was imported to the Philly area. It was made in the factory and is LHD because that's the way they were made when exported to the USA!
