Fake BMW

On a lighter note – it’s amazing what cars I see when I am walking around Bangkok.

I saw this “BMW” outside a Chinese Temple on Charoen Krung Road in Chinatown. Someone grafted the front of a BMW 3-Series onto a sedan.

I posted it to the “Guess the Car …” group on Flickr. The reliable Hugo90 replied that the original vehicle was an old Toyota Corolla.

The owner must have had a twinge of conscience: there’s a Toyota badge on the bonnet.

I wonder if the owner made any mechanical modifications. The wheels look expensive but I am not an expert on such things.
