El 36mino: 1997 BMW 328is Pickup Truck

BMWs legendary 3-series was enjoying the success of its 2nd generation 3-series when they released the freshly styled 3rd generation known as the E36 in 1992.  It was available as a coupe, convertible, sedan, wagon, and even a hatchback…but BMW never built a ute* version.  That job they left for the madmen with the tools and garage space.  Find this 1997 BMW 328is Pickup Truck (El Camino!) offered for $5,500 in Long Beach, CA via craigslist.

This E36 is built with a Mad Max meets Tron crossover theme, although the Bride of Frankenstein also comes to mind. I can’t quite tell if the decoration on the side is made from rust or some kind of paint.  It probably doesn’t matter, but the seller says that “Everything works fine and it’s totally drivable!” Sold!!
