My brother had a blue '91 GT and he loved it. My sister bought a '94 Z26 back in '96. I fell in love with that car then. She promised it to me when she graduated college. no real problems with hers, but I took care of it for her better than if it was my own. She had 176k miles on it when she got hit by a guy in a minivan doing 45. I attatched a tow rope to it and a tree and with a few good yanks, 1 new shock and some welding on the exhaust it was back on the road. A little crooked, but it did ok. I drove that for a little while but went back to my Mazda that was newer and in better shape.
Too bad I junked hers 3 months ago. If I would have known my car was gonna crap out I would have hung on to it. The one good tail light on that one was on the same side as my broken one
My '91 is a little beat up, but doesn't look too bad. It's got 126k miles on it. The biggest problem is all the rust underneath and a leaky trans line. Unfortunatly, that tends to be common on the Berettas
But...I definatly got a $600 car
As far as the bike goes, it provided the much needed leverage. It's been hanging in the garage for 8 years since my brother crashed it into a tree and bent the fork. I tore it down planning to do something with it and never did
