I can certainly relate Z. Years ago when holidaying in California, the topic came up with the different cars in our respective countries. Our host was telling us how much she loved the new 'sillycars', and wanted to save up for one. Had no idea what car she was referring to. When we were out and about, she pointed one out to us. She was talking about a Toyota Celica!
US pronounciation - Sillycar
Aussie pronounciation - Cell-ee-ca
