BMW and Toyota have developed a strong working relationship with their Z4 and Supra collaboration but it looks like a group of school kids in Alabama, USA have taken it upon themselves to expand on this relationship by merging the face of an E30 BMW 3 Series with the body of a Toyota Tacoma. We’re not too sure what to make of it.
Students from the CTEC Shelby County Career Tech Education Centre saw two out-of-commission vehicles and decided that they were both worth saving. The face, bonnet and front fenders have been sourced from a 1987 BMW 325i while everything else has been taken from a 2001 Toyota Tacoma. It’s a bit rough around the edges but overall a decent execution considering the difference in size between these two cars.
The fruits of these students’ labour will be on display at the school’s 2021 show.
Interestingly, this isn’t the first BMW E30 bakkie to exist. A few years ago, the BMW M department revealed that it had built a single-cab bakkie based off the M3 which it used to transport goods around its workshop.
