trip to the highest paved road in the road... the Islamabad Khunjerab rally

Won the regularity reliability prize in my 911 targa in the rally. The trip was to the Chinese border 15000 feet and the Babusar top also almost the same. Temp went from 20 celsius to -5 Celsius

Those body guys are absolute magicians in sheet metal! Terrific thread... I'm looking forward to the next installment! And I REALLY enjoyed those high altitude photos from the highway!

We all know the range of what the scalinos have been trading for lately, but dare I ask what this one cost you in Pakistan... in this condition??? Can you guys exchange titles or whatever ownership docs for non-running projects... or does it have to pass road worthiness inspection first and pray that the seller would be a genyleman and not renague on whatever had been agrerd upon after you have sunk your restoration money deep into it...
