About “Laguna Seca”

i bought this car brand new from the factory

About “Beretta”

Here I have a 1987 Chevrolet Beretta GT. This car has been in my family for over 20 years. I'm trying to get some funds together to restore her and to add some performance to her. Slowly but surely.

History

Made in 1987, she is one of the first batch of Berettas to roll out of the factory. She is currently one of the oldest Beretta still alive.

As far as my knowledge goes, this car was bought by my aunt in '87 or '88 and had it for like a year or so. My aunt is notorious for decimating cars, she ran her into the damn ground, and I guess she wanted to get rid of it. So in '88 or 89, my Dad told her that he'd buy it off of her and take care of the rest of the payments. And so, he bought her fixed her up and took care of her.

When I came into the States back in '92, I was 6, this was the first car I saw. I thought it was the coolest thing I'd ever seen. It was this little, bright red, sports coupe. I loved it, and I knew that one day I'd have it.

Then I got my license in '04 and it was still there. After a rebuilt Engine and Trans, my dad handed the keys to me, and I couldn't be happier. The car that I'd wanted since I was a kid was finally mine. This car has been extremely good to my family. She has taken us all over the place, mountains, desert, beach, city, anywhere.
