About “The Monte”

All things must change!!
Well after a long winter and spring I have finally completed this years projects. New induction, new exhaust and a new tune with a reputable shop for true numbers.

As before I am the original owner of this 86 SS.
Thanks for looking.

About “Z26”

My daily driver, I've had this car for 5 years and spent WAY too much money modding it. It is the first N/A auto Beretta in the 14s, and I started an exhaust cutout trend with my 92-93mph trap speeds. haha
