    Guys I think we are missing the point here, I think its cool that someone in the minitruck scene took interest in an E30 and did the work on one. You often see Mazda, and Toyota trucks at these things. I am sure there was a lot of hard work and custom stuff that went into that car.

    We all drive our cars for the performance, it’s obvious that this person made a show car and I think we should respect that. I am willing to bet that paint job regardless weather it is ugly or not is way more intricate then any of ours.
    FYI this is E30ownerwithanopinion (AVI) posting under a different user name.

      I don't think anyone here gives a shit about how much work went into it. It's ugly. Realizing the incredible amount of work that did go into it just makes it worse.

        It had that AVI taste to it.

        If someone allowed kindergarten tots to use crayola on his car, that would be most intricate. but that wouldn't make it good.

        Word to what Jarvis said. Speaking lots of money to make something THAT ugly is awful.

          I am going to move on from e30s to a mini truck, and Ryan Steward owned one.

          I cant speak for Ryan but I can appreciate the amount of work that went into both the suicide doors, paint, and swap, but it just does not suit an e30 and that style of minitruck is somewhat dated.

          Sold it.

            Baby blue mazda hammered on chrome rims... Cool.

            Baby blue e30 hammered on chrome rims... Not cool.

              Some things never change.

              Duct tape solutions = cool.

              Duct tape prom tuxedo = pimp

              Duct tape wallet = priceless, and more full than a leather one

                the new rolls fantom looks pretty sick with the suicide doors also

                why would anyone do that to an e30 :(

                    Y’all are haters. I love a stock e30 or oem+ or whatever is the style du jour but suicide doors are sick. They’re clearly not German race tech but who cares it’s just custom work that echoed the craze that got so many people into The fast and the furious which probably got a huge portion of a generation into cars / making your car your own unique project.
