Cool Pictures

In order to honour MG Ace Face, and to carry the torch for the (hopefully short) time while he's gone (and I'm confident he'll return), let's revive Motown's thread, which is far too good to be forgotten...

Here's to you, Mr Motown!

    • Haha, No Dave, however it was part and parcel of club life and I don't think the smoke makes the pics any less epic.

  • 3496339714?profile=RESIZE_930xWhenever I see one of these Mini Mokes, it always reminds me of Johnny Moke. I'm sure you know the story, so I promise not to bang on about The Scene Club, or his influences on fashion and the Mod movement. Suffice to to say that he had a Mini Moke and came to be known as Johnny Moke. Clients included Weller and Hendrix. In 1979 he was asked to design a scooter for an Italian manufacturer, of which produced 50 limited machines. Anyhow, this is a photo I took at the Isle Of Wight Scooter Rally 2019. Sadly, not too many of these around now and alas John Rowley is no longer with us.
