Is this legal in Indiana? I guess so.
Pictures are going viral on social media with what appears to be a Nissan R32 Skyline GT-R driving around with a platform welded to its chassis with still another Nissan R32 Skyline GT-R parked on top of it.
Yes, there’s a Skyline with a Skyline on top of it.
Those even slightly familiar with car youtubers put two and two together and figured this is probably something WhistlinDiesel (a car youtuber known for pulling insane car stunts) would do.
Sure enough, a few days later after WhistlinDiesel was tagged in said photos, WD himself confirmed on his social media pages that he was the mastermind behind this Frankenstein of a welding project.
Here are the photos going viral below and the posts from WD.

Of course, the one question on everyone’s mind is…why?
And, with anything WhistlinDiesel, the answer is probably, “Why not?”
While WD is known for his wild stunts, pushing his heavy duty trucks to the absolute limit, he does seem to have an axe to grind with the imports.
Last year he really put a Toyota Hilux threw the wringer, putting the poor truck through a series of tests that makes what Top Gear did look like a Sunday picnic.
And, most recently, he taken these, what he calls, “overpriced,” Nissan Skylines through a similar battery of tests, just plain destroying them.
If you can’t already tell by his painters tape that says R34, the running joke with this latest creation is making a Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 by combining two R32s, one on top of another.
His tower of Skylines is meant to rustle some jimmies for Youtube clout and to knock the reputation of this Japanese import in America down a peg or two.
WD’s creation is also trying to make a point, that we’re paying way too much for what he calls a, “…another clapped out over priced over hyped 30 year old absolute piece of garbage car.”
According to Bring a Trailer’s latest results this past year, the average price for an R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R is around $40,000.
As one commenter put it, “the Skyline is a $10,000 car we’re paying an extra $30,000 in clout tax.”
Well, it seems to be doing the job as, just from reading the comments on WD’s posts, JDM purists and traditional car enthusiasts are somewhat upset (to say the least.)
At the end of the day, they’re his cars, it’s his money, and as long as he’s getting attention, he’ll keep getting Youtube money to fund his chaotic evil creations.
Troll on, WD.
