They evidently have a nice motorpool in the Thai army:

Interesting that the article makes no mention that they are Right Hand Drive 182's.

I don't think the guy who wrote it is very technical minded to even know about 182's.
Did anyone happen to notice the link at to the bottom of the page to the article about the "amphibious version" of the Thing? Pretty neat idea. Too bad they didn't make one. There was a guy in France (?) who converted one to amphibious about 10 years ago.

that would make sense since they drive on the left in Thailand.

I don't know how it is to live there but it's a beautiful and fantastic place to visit with some of the best food in all of Southeast Asia. Highly recommend it, especially if you completely avoid the tourist hotspots.
