The Colours of Summer
What a beautiful sight on a sunny, general meeting evening. And this isn't all of them. At one point we could count 16 Mokes outside the club room.
2017 Encouragement Award
Finally presented to Rebecca and Leigh Luxford by President Cliff. The Luxfords received the award because from the date they joined they came to all meetings and attended all trips up until they went on their 5 month round Australia trip - and therefore missed the Presentation Lunch. Also Rebecca took minutes several times at the meetings when the Secretary couldn't make it.

Mark Radford (#180) has recently found and converted a Super 8 film of this event. This amazing day in club history now has its permanent home in VIC MOKE our You Tube Channel. See Video Links in Quick Links at the bottom of this page or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QyouZGfxXnI&t
Mark's Other Find
Let's let Mark tell the story:
So, I was screwing the downpipe to the shed wall. I went to use the Angle Grinder to cut a pipe … and the power had gone off.
The Safety Switch had tripped. I had screwed through the Shed wall and through the power cable. In order to repair the power cable I had to pull out a shelf. An old shelf, covered in dust, dirt, mouse poo, etc.
I cleared everything off the shelf and unscrewed it off the wall. As I lifted it off I noticed an unusual ‘shape’ in amongst the grime.
It was a metal map of Australia ... with some engraving on it.
I took it inside and, with the help of some ‘Silvo’ and elbow grease, I polished it up.
The inscription is:
To Cappy from The Boys of the 2nd 108 Transport 1946
Many years ago I had this little Map on the front of my Green Moke. It travelled thousands of kilometres around Australia.When I painted the Moke red I took it off and haven’t seen it since. What a treasure!
- Cappy was Mark's grandfather.
- Can anyone suggest what metal the plaque might be? Mark says: "No rust and not brass."
- The hunt is on. Can anyone find a photo of this plaque on Mark's Moke when it was painted green?
A Merry Missy Christmas
- 30 Mokes and around 65 people present but Missy and Rhonda were probably the 'best dressed'.
- Santa did the right thing by the kids - small and big
- ...and there was ice-cream for supper. Yummy!
Welcome to the Moke Owners Association of Victoria, a place for members and potential members to learn more about the world's first Moke owners' club.
Established in 1969 the Moke Owners Association has over 170 members in Victoria, Australia and a few dotted in countries around the world. The MOA has a diverse, family friendly membership, our club being for the Moke Owner and not just about the great little car. We have regular drives and trips for you to enjoy in your Moke, Service Days and General Meetings to learn about your Moke and social events such as our annual presentation night and our unique ten pin bowling challenge.
A foundation principle of the Moke Owners Association is to do good in the community and that has us providing Mokes and drivers for annual events such as Anzac Day parades, supporting community events and helping local groups where we can.
Please browse our website. We have created it to be the Centre of the Moking World. You can also visit us on Facebook, but most of all we would love you to join us at a monthly General Meeting, or on a drive, or at a Service Day. You don't have to own a Moke to come along, but if you do own one then hopefully you will see benefit in becoming a Member of the Moke Owners Association of Victoria.
KEEP ON MOKIN'
