Tired of That Boring Old E36?

Illustration for article titled Tired of That Boring Old E36?

We're... confused by this. Someone has taken an E36 BMW and expended a lot of time and money to convert it into a vehicle resembling a Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R. Any insights into the thought processes behind this project?

Well, um, both cars do have inline sixes and...yeah, I've got nothing.

This is the first example I've seen of modifying a car to look like a downmarket brand, though, which is odd, sort of like an anti Testarossa-bodied Fiero.

Also interesting is the first comment on that carscoop post, as apparently a fellow is promising to blow up an E36 if he gets enough facebook friends. I'm not sure if destroying a car with dynamite would qualify him for hoon of the day, but it would certainly be worth watching.
