I would not recommend driving an Elan, or any Lotus, to Tahsis, British Columbia but ten days ago that is exactly what I did. It was an optional part of the "Rush To Goldbridge" classic rally. My gung-ho navigator begged me to do the extra miles and I did. After driving to Gold River BC, we then went off the paved roads and onto 45 miles of rough gravel road-each way! https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Tahsis ... 126.656541
The car stood up very well, as it should have with a re-enforced chassis, new shocks, springs, tires, engine, transmission etc.
