A new Moke book is on the way apparently. To be published early 2013.
Anyone know anything about it?

No, but if it's the same author that writes under that name, there's absolutely no chance of getting his autograph on the first page:

The garage was too short for a full sized moke, so I just bought a Schmitt ;-)

Synopsis doesnt sound too good
'The Moke was manufactured in Britain and in numerous other countries around the world, both as full local assembly and as from kits.'!!
Thought I had read somewhere that they were never produced as kits?

That,s CKD kits. For final production by the local BMC plant. Much like UK built cars nowadays
