Very safe for those of us whose mokes aren't going eh Dev....Newie........................Scoob........me

Enjoy your mokes those of you lucky ones whose mokes go!

Martin

Not counting on it yet but I invited my dad to bring his healey, do to join the Mini's in the park and he was going to.  He now has to go and do some training in the bush.  Plan discussed this morning, is a driving lesson for me tomorrow and I might be getting the Healey for the day.  Sorry to so freely be a traitor and change makes but it is still part of the BMC badge and it doesn't have a tin top, like those Minis.

So Martin, that is why I a hoping and wishing for safe driving.  I am getting the BN7 as dad managed to bend the BJ8 and it is at the panel beaters.  So I am not allowed to do anything to this one.

Safe Driving.

Cheers

Dev

Cool, and more HP too ( apart from Ian ) - didn't one of the Austin Healeys have a funny gear change pattern, like the reverse of normal due to the box being a column change box converted to floor change?

Not sure about the funny box, I think it is a fairly normal change, just a funny electric overdrive.  I think dad's biggest fears with me driving it are, a combination of it being Left Hand Drive and even he can sometime get surprised by it's desire to over steer with out much warning.  I haven't had much time driving Left Hand Drive cars, so he could have a point there but really it ain't a biggy.

Tell your Dad, that I'd swap my Moke for a big Healey, once he gets it back from the bodyworks. ;)

Driving a Moke with a hardtop is like having a shower in a raincoat.

Your on the list right behind ................  Actually you are on top of that list.  It is the first offer to swap a moke for one of the Healeys, My offers to look after his toys have never actually included giving him my Moke, just maybe that is why he hasn't taken me up on my offer.  Then on the other hand, maybe he has them as he wants them for himself to enjoy.  Bugga

I had a thought the other day that we should try and get some video of each IMD event and then
some how get them all edited into on vid and put up on Utube but as this may be a bit difficult why don't
we all post our photos of each IMD into a new thread or into the respective local event threads.
Then we could get someone who is skilled in making slide shows and ask them nicely tp
collect all the photos, add some snazzy titles and special effects and posting it on Utube,

 I'm not fussed if said skilled person is French and drives a foreign moke but I think it would make a
good record of IMD 2010.

Test drive completed, I pick it up in the morning.  It does however come with conditions.  First is from mum and not from dad. "I will come with you".  I don't know whether she trusts me less than dad or is just jealous that she hasn't been allowed to drive it.  I think she just likes being seen in it.

Cheers

Ah, shows how we mature as we get older. Not that many years ago, I'm guessing your Mum coming with you would have been a deal breaker  ;D

Sounds like fun Dev and the next best thing to driving a Moke  ;)

Terry's still en-route home from Tamworth and won't get home until tomorrow night (hopefully).

Excellent question AC, but don't know that Terry will have had time to collate it yet. Been very busy.

Hi,

No idea. :(

I have a few photos for events and some articles to put together and that usually prompts a few other to send me some of their items but for one reason or another i haven't managed to get them sorted and up on the site.

I will let you know when i do.

Terry

Ps. Thanks for asking :)
