First How did i miss this thread . Amazing and funny yet it shows the strength our Indian auto has in the eyes of westerners .Now who would have thought out there you do not really need 4X4's with Differential's , TCS , EBD etc and all the big engines with earth ripping,Tyre shredding torque for doing the most difficult roads in India or may i say the world .
Because all we need is spirit and will power .And why not people have done it in m800 , Matiz , Uno so why not an Auto.
I do hope to see this trip realize .

good one Sawyer

I guess all the guys like us who own vehicles like Safari's, Scorpios and in some cases the more expensive SUV's like Endeavour, Captiva, Pajero etc, are literally kept chained to their desks by their bosses and by the urge to earn enough to continue the lifestyle they have gotten used to.

This leaves many of us with precious little time to take the SUV's and drive off to the beautiful little known, off-the-beaten-track sort of places!

Thats why I love that Safari ad - it really strikes a chord deep within.

I guess, to be completely honest, all of us would love to escape our "captivity".

Oh for the advantages of having a private income coupled with zero drudgery!

I would not even call the Pajero or Endeavour swanky anymore, and precious few of those have been there!

What an idea sirjee. Surely, if they try they will do it.
Come on now, I don't think there is any road which is specifically built for a certain vehicle. They are all made so that wheels can roll, so anything with wheels should be able to.
