Is this where it all started?

Is that Bangle's first prototype E30?

WTF?! That WAS an E30 M3. This is going to give TD a heart attack.

Don't feel too sorry for the "car", it never was a real E30 M3 that somebody chopped.

The story of this "car" is that it was a design exercise for the junior engineers at BMW years ago. Their skills were tested to create something different.

As the story goes, the "car" was used to move parts around the factory. Not sure what engine it has it in though.

There was another E30 pick up at the Zentrum in SC within the last few years.

Sheesh! What a perve!!!

I know - it's Springtime, and the moon is full.

That is not, however, what I had in mind...
