The new project from one member of the E46fanatics forum and has recently proven just how much of a fanatic he is by creating this E46-based modern El Camino. The most surprising aspect is that produced for less than $ 10,000 total for the project. The project snowballed a bit and now includes more efficient fabricated body with custom rear window, sunroof short track, BMW gas cap integrated into the bed shortened.
This project starting out with a totaled E46 330i Coupe (optioned the ZHP performance package, no less), forum member bodycustom1 originally intended to just repair the car. Then his father walked into the shop gave him a different idea: lob off the remains of the rear end and tack on the bed from a Chevy Colorado.
This may enrage BMW purists all day long, but other car fans out there should be able to move beyond the “destruction” of this BMW coupe and see a nice utilitarian vehicle that was saved from the crusher.
