    Default Highest motorable pass in the world

    (or so they say, according to the Guinness book)

    17,582 feet, wow. I wonder if there are a lot of modifications necessary for vehicles to make it through at this altitude

    Given the derelict vehicles that make it over the pass, I doubt you need any modifications. Now, if your car lived at that altitude it would be a different story.
