Wow, that's some serious armor. You suppose the driver carries it in that cart he is towing?

If anybody wants one of these (the Pinto with the porthole) there is one for sale up in Frederick Maryland...

Actually, that's not body cladding at all. All E90 Tourings destined for the Iraqi market will look that way.

Yeah, that's just a small giveaway to what the car is. The rear looks very X3-ish. I haven't looked too closely at the current Touring to notice similarities, but i'm sure they're there.

I'm impressed...that you can quickly dig up a photo of the Pinto wagon

Plus, the E90 has a CB radio antenna...definitely 70s retro...

With all that cladding, if there's any resemblance, there isn't much to see. The roof spoiler is similar though this one is much fatter, and it appears that the glass still opens separately. That's good, because the X3/X5 don't, and that's very lame. Neither the lower bumper nor the license plate area and the trim above it look E46 Touring-ish.

Looking at the pic it looks like it has the same "Keilform" as the E46 Touring... I have no words for that in English... Alex...?

Cool

I like the hub caps on the trailer. I wonder what secret model the trailer is?
