It was a Moke and it was a Mini, in outdoor fun garb. And one that could go topless as well. Oh, “nanoo nanoo”, it also reminded me of Mork and Mindy (theirs was a Jeep).
When it first caught my attention — in the late 70s — I thought I saw a big-eye bug on wheels. It was very popular as a beach buggy in places like Australia. I wanted to get hold of one, but alas, poor me, even by the time it went out of production, I could not amass enough dollars to afford it.
BTW, the word Moke means Donkey in an old English dialect.
