A pair of young Australian brothers who were apparently over eager to see their grandfather decided to clandestinely borrow their grandmother's red Holden Commodore on Sunday and set out to find him. The two boys drove around 60 miles, none of which would be news if the boys weren't ages 10 and six.

To their eternal credit, the two appear to be decent drivers-- they reportedly weren't driving erratically, and were only pulled over by police after some truckers had tipped off police. Once pursuing police flicked on their lights, the boys dutifully pulled over, then hopped in the back seat, ostensibly to make like they had been passengers the entire time.

Interestingly, the authorities spoke with the boys' relatives, and no further repercussions are planned.
