blunderbuss2
(112 items)

With everybody showing peddle cars & old cars, here was my fun car. Didn't have a top and with those tiny wheels on island roads, there was only one name to give it. I am still called "Shake n Bake" here. This is a Mini Moke & I've had 6-7 of them. Nothing you can't fix on the road with a screwdriver & a metric crescent wrench.
Year? That would depend on which part you are looking at. Not really a push car but was pushed a lot.

    Nice pic, not sure that I would want to shake or bake!

    Hey, walksoftly, these were fun things! You just had to make sure you kept your mouth closed when driving on our roads. These were the Eng. jeeps. Tourists loved to have their pics taken with it. Problem with the Eng. is, they make engines for vehicles they want to sell in the tropics but refuse to design an eng. cooling system for the tropics so we have to change things & compensate like larger radiators & 12 blade rad. fans. The Eng. are stubborn or stupid with designs.
    Still a really fun "car" if you don't get stuck in traffic!

    Looks like that bumper got used for pushing traffic out of the way!
  6. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
    Good guess, but as I remember, it was from "S&B" being pushed out of the way.LOL Driving on this rock is lots of aggression interrupted by moments of courtesy. Actually it was like that when I "inherited" it & there were too many issues more important. I admit, I miss it.

    You are never an afterthought! I just save the best for last...hope you are doing well.
  8. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
    Time is up. I was curious if anybody would catch the "metric crescent wrench", as if there is a difference. For the uninformed, Crescent is a brand that has become generic for an adjustable wrench. Key word being "adjustable", so fits all.

    I caught it, I didn't comment as they are so common here since the introduction (forced) in the mid seventies.
  10. walksoftly walksoftly, 1 year ago
    Above comment should have had read
    introduction of the metric system (forced) in the mid seventies
  11. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
    When I had my club in Jamaica & tourists started acting real strange on drugs, we would say, " They're going metric".

    Love it blunderbuss! These used to be our main mode of getting around Barbados! FUN! but with the state of the roads, even a short journey left you shaken, rattled and rolled! (Keith and I even managed to break one clean in two!)
  13. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
    A friend of mine broke my back-up Moke in two. Where have you been, shopping for a tely & a v-ass?
  14. Hems303 Hems303, 1 year ago
    No "Telly" nor vases'....bin painting pictures for the Military (Mess). The mokes weren't too strong in the chassis department!
  15. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
    Yeah, just boxes that rust from the inside out.

    Hi Shake & Bake ;)
    Just read your comment .5........ Being English (as you know by now!)....I'd like to take issue to a couple'o'points: English = Stubborn....well yes sometimes! But not in car design..more on that later! English = Stupid with designs.....er NO! see "Industrial Revolution...cast iron etc etc. see...Rolls Royce... see....Spitfire etc etc etc..you get the point. The Mini Moke was a converted Morris Motors Mini, which was made exclusively for the rainy, wet, cold ENGLISH weather. Someone then put the cut-down body on it and thought Hmmm...this would go well in sunny holiday destinations....without thinking of small things like adequate cooling. I understand the original, great, "not-in-the-slightest-bit-stupid" Mini designer Sir Alex Issigonis was absolutely bloody horrified with the "Moke" and went away and designed his own take on the tourist run-a-round, but it was never taken up (It had good cooling though!).....and FINALLY....the British "Jeep" (Yuk!) is and always will be the ubiquitous LAND ROVER...another excellent, well thought out British design, still in use by the Military and Civilians alike since 1948 (with a few minor updates!)....................have a nice day!

    Best wishes....Steve ;)

    Would you like a lolly-pop & a ride home from school little girl?
  21. walksoftly walksoftly, 1 year ago
    Careful b bus, inky will run you over with her big truck!
  22. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
    Maybe I can put my truck on steroids.
  23. walksoftly walksoftly, 1 year ago
    As long as you stay on the Island your safe from her "big wheels"!
    hmmm.. that reminds me of a song
  24. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
    walksoftly, I was born at night, but it wasn't last night. Hey, she's really nice looking, - & I used to be.
  25. walksoftly walksoftly, 1 year ago
    Yes, use to be, I think you need to upgrade to a nicer set of wheels! :-)
  26. inky inky, 1 year ago
    Where abouts in Jamaica?
  27. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
    I owned a club in Negril, Westmoreland & after I sold it I lived in a number of places around the island while smuggling my money out. Montego Bay would probably be the only place you would know as I usually lived in small communities.
    In case you know Jamaica, I lived for a long time down the "road" from New Hope & Old Hope in what we called "No Hope" but locally as Little bay.
  28. inky inky, 1 year ago
    I lived in Kingston when Iwas young for a threes or so years, many years ago!...:-)
  29. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
    Oou! Talk about the crotch of the planet. When I had to stay overnite in that area, I went straight to Port Royal where I knew people & the history helped also.
    Do you remember the drive-in movie where you turn to go to Port Royal that they closed because people in cars would shoot at characters in the movie that were on the screen? Cops probably.
    In Port Royal, a gunman had to escape via 7 miles down the palisades or take the ferry, so it was fairly safe.
    Did you ever see that old steam locomotive in the train station that was used for the military airfield during the war or the old airfield with the bomb bunkers etc.?
    Don't get me started on stories of life in Jamaica.
  30. inky inky, 1 year ago
    Sorry!.. haven't got back sooner but have had overseas visitors her and only done fleeting visits. I only have really!! good memories of Jamaica as was probably to young to see all the nasty stuff... guineps hot corn on the cob bought from the side of the road, Dunns River falls, Montego Beaches ect...:-)
  31. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
    Oh, Jamaica is a beautiful country, if they could just get rid of all those Jamaicans!LOL . Love some of the area names like, "Me no sen yu no com", "District of look behind", Rat trap, Bloody Ground etc.
  32. neat.old.stuff neat.old.stuff, 1 year ago
    Looks like a fun, "big guys go-cart". And sounds like you could tell alot of great stories from your Jamaican days. Thanks for sharing.
  33. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
    Thanks everybody for the interest & rap. Thinking of a Jamaica vacation? My advice is: don't go, - just send you money.
