Do you know what this is?

I know what this is but I thought I'd see who else among you knows…. The grille should be a dead giveaway.

My buddy owns this and his tastes are rather eclectic.

LOL, I went straight to the wiki page on this vehicle when I saw it, & from there just googled images. I nearly burst out good when I saw they even had a 6-wheel version of that thing... WOW.
Here is a link to the the 6-wheeler... http://www.sportscardigest.com/wp-conte ... i-moke.jpg

That brings back memories.
I lived in Malta in a past life and drove one of those Mini Mokes around the island half drunk all the time. Lots of fun.

Moke= in pigon hawaian is like a bullies, well they say bull, as in tuff guy also but moke is a crazy tuff guy; in femenet terms (if you could say ) tuff or manly women= a titta...so you would say " I seen one Moke an one Titta across da road" meaning a pair of professional weserlers one man and one woman were across the road...so much for this moke vihicle.

A new version of the Moke is manufactured in China to specs of an Australian entrepreneur and is sold in Thailand and a number of other countries.

Another useless bit of info: the Australian Army used Mokes way back when.
