That's a "Lambro 600"   8)

In Afghanistan they call them 'tuk tuks' because of the noise they make, according to a soldier buddy of mine. They must be all over Asia. Stinky two strokes, no wonder the air is bad in many places.

I'll get a midget and some pink paint plus whatever else I can do to it. I buy every midget I see in the UCD so I have a few. I'll save it for Christmas, hahaha

Really? We don't see them here at all, only the one that I posted on Facebook, I think it was a Mitsubishi. It had four wheels, just a really tiny pickup. It would have been fun back on the farm when I was a kid.

Anyone ever seen "Ong Bak"...? There's a fantastic TukTuk chase scene in that film...  8)

That's funny because I always pronounce the h's when I say it. Kuh-harmon Gu-heya . At one point the kids laughed. Now they just roll their eyes.
There's always a guy like that in some places. His backyard is full of Jeeps or Volks or International Cubs, stuff like that. A guy near me had a whole slew of Triumphs or MGBs plus a knockout wife. That's why I don't know what the cars were. Hahaha

I think I have seen it, not sure. I watch a slew of that stuff on Netflix and Youtube so I'll see if I can find it again.

Can't find it on youtube apart from some dumb hi-speed version with Benny Hill theme tune over it (must be to avoid copyright issues)

I think I found it on tom365.com. It's slow right now but might pick up later on. Yes! I checked and it is Ong Bak, no subs but I think I can get the jist of it.

a tuk-tuk is a midget but built way cheaper, you could probably pick one up for a sheep, a goat, 2 onions and half an hour with your ex lol

Been on tuk-tuks a good few times in Thailand. We actually convinced the one guy to pull a wheelie, but we were at an intersection & nearly ended up on the sidewalk...  :) He wasn't too impressed. There's a small business in Cape Town that's trying to secure the rights to use their fleet of brand new ones for city transport. Tied up in red tape at the moment... :(   http://www.travelstart.co.za/lp/cape-town/transport/tuk-tuk-taxi
