About “Baltus Maximus”

Car is a Black 2005 Chevy Cobalt SS Supercharged Edition. It's the Black/Black trim.

About “the retta”

This was my first car, got it in like august '01. It used to belong to my big brother, but he moved and gave it to me. It had like 90,000 original miles on it, pretty good for an '88. Well I barely started getting in to cars and stuff. so ive been slowly modding it and learning fiberglassing and engine work and stuff. I have another Beretta to drive around as a daily so I can work on this once a week if im lucky.
