About “Z26”

My daily driver, I've had this car for 5 years and spent WAY too much money modding it. It is the first N/A auto Beretta in the 14s, and I started an exhaust cutout trend with my 92-93mph trap speeds. haha

About “Retta”

This is my 3rd car. Its a Red 1996 Beretta with the 3100. Its a base model, but Ive done a few upgrades to make this how I want it, and I absolutely love it. I got it with 145k miles on it in August of '04, and now it has something around 177k miles on it.
