My Beretta's! :)

This is my 90 GTZ, I decided it is time to post an image on the forums that I'm the one who owns the Proving Grounds GTZ from Mesa AZ. Previous owners couldn't get documentation. I am planning to find out some info myself later on.

I had a day of nothingness so I decided I'm going to spend it washing my Beretta's. :)
The red 88 CL isn't mine. The black one is my 96 Z26 swap that is listed in the for sale section in these forums, the white one is my 90 GTZ (I'm keeping this forever). Still just as clean as the day I bought it, but had some dirt from being driven a little so it needed some washing. I didn't clean the GTZ rims in the group pic but I did after in the single pic.
The only flaw on the GTZ is the paint flaked off on the top corner of the driver door, and the same thing happened on the top corner of the passenger door, and a dime sized pot on the roof. Currently looking into getting touch up paint and having a place fix the paint in those spots.
I have the rear window's solar wing in storage.
I am also saving up to get a full stainless steel exhaust put on the 90 GTZ, the tail pipes from the factory muffler are in storage, I have a small aftermarket replacement muffler on it for temporary.
The GTZ has 125,261 Miles on it at the moment.
My 96 Z26 swap has about 129,000 Miles.
My 90 Indy has 17,000 Miles, Probably the lowest Miles Indy in the whole USA not counting the 3 convertible ones.
These are probably the 4 of the cleanest Beretta's in Ohio, unless someone here has one hidden away like I do. :)

Those are awesome, way to keep some mint examples alive! Even the Z26 and GTZ are low miles considering the age. The Deville in the background looks pretty sweet too.

Thanks. :)
I like keeping them nice because its no fun driving in something that's run down or beat up. Gotta have style and turn heads!

Thats my 1987 Cadillac Brougham D'Elegance.
It has an oldsmobile 455 under the hood with a cam. 71 engine so lower compression, Still debating on Flat or Dome top pistons, I found out I can buy a rotating assembly to just drop in and go, but I haven't looked into it much past that at this time. Not long ago I was considering trading it for a chevy sonic with the I4 as well because it gets 11 mpg, but I would totally miss it if I did that. lol

Looks good under the hood too! Even with the lower compression I'm sure the 455 was a great upgrade, I thought some models/years of Cadillac's had 350's or something small for the weight of the car.

Those are so comfortable its like ridin' in your living room.

Its funny you mention mpg's, that's how I ended up with my Beretta. I was looking for something with better economy and somehow I ended up with it instead, lol
Whatever, our vintage tin is way-cool even if there's a little more gas involved.

Yah they had the olds 307, or chevy 305, Some had the HT4100 or the 4.1 v6, And I believe a diesel option existed.

I will never get used to how perfect the dash is on my white 90 GTZ. :)
That's the actual dash, no cap/cover.

It's perfect because it was completely redone by Just Dash's :) Not hard for them to look new when they are new! (and with better materials than stock)

Yah it probably won't ever warp like the factory ones do.
There is a small flaw in the color by the driver side speaker. But I cant complain because its near perfect.

The 5 spd is fun to drive. If you aren't careful the quad4 can easily spin the front wheels.
I get awesome gas mileage with this thing.

Working on my sunbird in the garage and using my Indy to play music with my tape adapter. Had to stop and take more pictures.
The yellow Indys are my all time favorite! :)
