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.

About “The Retta”

this is my Beretta GTZ. my dad was the second owner of the car in 1990. the first owner could not make the payments so the car was repo'd and my father then bought it and drove it as a daily driver everyday till 2004. as of now the car is getting rebuilt in my garage and i have big plans for it but not enough money :(
