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.
