Head to Head
I was tired of driving the P.O.S. Taurus that my folks gave me as a "Hand Me Down" (The dealer wouldn't give them squat for it in trade!), so I went out looking for something that fit my personality better but wouldn't drink too much gas. Turns out she looks just like a car driven by a character in one of my favorite series of mystery novels, so I named the car after her.
About “The Beretta”
I bought this car in 2001 when I was in high school. I drove it and loved it right away. I took care of it and made sure that everything was always maintained and it has never let me down, even with 283,000 miles on her. I have always paid for everything on it & I have put a lot of time in it so the car means a lot. There are a lot more plans in store for her and I don't think they will end any time soon.
She is currently sitting in my garage awaiting a complete rebuild. I haven't had her on the road for a year.

With a v6 and automatic, she's no speed demon, but she's sporty and comfortable. She's just hard to get in and out of gracefully when I'm wearing a dress!
