I was inspired to write this after deciding to find another website like Pinterest or Gentlemint.

What I found instead was a handful of satire sites.

I also concluded that Gentlemint is probably one of the best Pinning sites for guys.

The Moke was originally a military purpose vehicle that saw life elsewhere. If the same idea here can be applied elsewhere, it could mean a nice revival for the original GP and VW/Bombardier Iltus.
