      I'm sorry, this is not impressive, if I had the money and the shop, I'd do it to my E30. Show me this build on a 5K budget, in a normal garage, then I'll be impressed. The car looks nice though.

      Damn amazing build. I'm guessing it's slightly nose heavy.

      whats with all the assuming that the kid has loads of money? Who cares!? If he had loads of cash, why would he buy a wrecked starting point? Anyhow, it doesn't matter, loaded or not, this is a cool build, I'm almost more impressed by the body repair than I am with the swap..

      Not to take anything away from the fabrication, but it does look like he might be from a family that campaigns DTM cars. If you look at the shop and the spare wheels with massive Michelin slicks mounted to them. Also, these projects are typically a write-off as a "shop car" to demonstrate their skill. Either way, I want video.

      Cool car.
      While Bulgaria was in the Soviet sphere of influence, uses the Cyrillic alphabet and has a similar language, it was never part of Soviet Russia . It's just a neighbor.

      And yes, it's a cool car .

      Good god people, it's a sweet build and an awesome swap, all I'm saying is with their own shop, unlimited funds/material and fabrication skills, anybody could do it.

      As you get older you will realize its not about who could do it, but rather who actually does it.

      You're very correct, I was going to say "Former Soviet Republic of Bulgaria, but it was too wordy.
