    My first visit to Thailand was the last two weeks of August, 1988.

    Was a shame that I never had a ride in one, but does anybody here remember what kind of motor powered these large tuk tuks?

    No idea .... but a year ago I still saw them in Pattaya at Bali Hai pier so just go there and have a ride!
    As far as I can remember when I had a look at it, it are small car-engines (they have reverse).

    Very smooth and silent ride.Powered by a 4 cyl Toyota car engine.May be 1.5 liter.
