I swear, my dad finds the weirdest things for sale over on Facebook Marketplace.

I'm not sure how this wood-paneled 325xi makes me feel.

Currently for sale for $5700.

That's amazing. 10/10 would daily, including the decorative surfboard.

Looks to be pretty well-executed.  I think I like it.

Ford dealer got ahold of it at some point in it's life? Reminds me of all the "landau roofs" dealers used to put on almost anything.

Here is a fine example

I think I have to agree. I feel like I shouldn't like this, but I do.

I like the faux woodie wagon.

They did not do a bad job of it, and with the surfboard it almost looks like it is appropriate.

With a name like Colin Wood, you have to have some sort of a "woodie"

I do like country squires, and it actually looks better than I expected. However, I cannot decide if this is genius or madness. I would probably drive it, but my wife would not want to be seen in it. I also think, it might look better without the fake wood on the headlights.

For some reason I feel like it needs silver painted tire rack steelies.

Or some other subtle retro vibe wheels.

I like it.  For me, what makes it work is the detailed light wood around the dark wood.  The tailgate lacks this detail.  I am almost wondering if it may have been better to just not do the rear if there was not a way to do it with the light trim.

Awwww man, our son just got terminated due to Covid, if I had the resources I'd scoop that up so he can terminate his wife's car lease!

He does live in Connecticut ....

It'd be a much better driver than the woody Dodge Diplomat wagon I've always (inexplicably) wanted.

EDIT: (What sort of crazy effects are left by being a kid in the '70s? I mean, seriously, I imprinted on *that*!? WTB?)

It's like a PT Cruiser on steroids.
