About “GhostRider”

**I am in drastic need of an update!**
A LOT has been done to the car in the last year or so. I really need to update my page. Please enjoy what I currently have posted, but come on back to see the updated, more inclusive page soon!

I bought the car on the cheap over 4 years ago and have been fixing her up ever since. Originally purchased with a mere 67,000 miles, she now has only 123,000!!

The car is not only a daily driver, but my Auto Cross and Rally Cross car as well. It actually performs very well as a Rally Cross car and took second place in the Rocky Mountain Divisional Rally Cross in 2006. Since then I have been Autoo Crossing it mostly, trying to work on that perfect line...

There were a few thousand Berettas made for the European countries with different headlights, tail lights, side mirrors and more. This car is the most complete European conversion of a Beretta outside of the European countries.

This car has been practically rebuilt! Only a few more things remain to be replaced / upgraded and it will be a "new" car! Once the engine dies, if ever... I will swap in a 3.1L crate engine for a bit more power. I hope ot have the car at its 25 year mark as then I can get classic plates for her. this car has been a part of me for a while now... and will continue to be my baby for many years to come.
