Shame I didn't sell my cars on my own advice :lol:


My pals in the trade tell me that Mokes in particular have nosedived, with further drops to come. Their advice? Get out at any cost while you can.

I pass this on, purely in a spirit of goodwill and friendship. 8-)

aparentley post brexit mokes are going to be outlawed for use in the uk


those poor sods who have them are going to be lucky to get £500 for them as they wont be able to export them due to eu directives


sell now would be my advice before the market floods with unsellable drive blockers

:lol:

(am i doing this right al?)

yes, but you are sadly peddling false promises in terms of values. You are still talking about the pre-lunchtime values.

It's a tragically dynamic market.

the smart people are going long on the rapidly falling values of mokes, ive recently put my red braces on and been brave enough to offer a moke owner £300 for the value of his failing asset.

It's good to know that in these frightening times there are still 'good Samaritans' prepared to take a loss to help out their fellow man.

I think I'll commend you for a Nobel prize for charitable moke buying.

Sir, I salute you!

To lessen the blow to you , I'll take it off you for £175 (to reflect the fall whilst typing this post).

a generous offer from such a charitable person, but i just couldn't accept, just think of the grimy, tear stained faces of your weans on Christmas morning, when they realise that their daddy has wasted their birthright and inheritance on yet more useless junk


its bad enough that the social services and the environment are onto you about that mini van, to tempt fate by adding a moke to the unusable drive blockers will only see you on 'neighbours from hell'

:lol:

Excellent. Well done.

I consider this a very successful thread drift.
