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 :(
