Started to watch the film Adulthood last night and around 17 minutes in one the youths, I am being polite otherwise I would have written scroats, is breaking into a car which just happens to be a black RX-8, his reaction when he opens the rears doors is so typical.

I still say my favourite unlikely sighting was in downtown Yangon. God knows how they service and repair an RX8 there.

You can drive your own tuk tuk now, there are excursions that offer it in Thailand. It's a hoot.
