Drove it. Hit 95 on the way home and held it above 90 for over a mile or so. (have to stretch its legs once in a while) It was nice. All in all, around 100 miles today. Lots of idling in traffic, actually hit a high enough temp to kick the fan on. Wild man.

It was washed a few days ago, but dirty again. Have to wash it later this week again I guess.

That reminds me. I also took this picture at WallyWorld.

Yes, its a 94 base. How do I know? Same color as mine.

It is beat to piss. Paint faded, peeling, headliner all sagging down, mirror busted on pass side, fender and hood tweaked, headlights were even knocked askew, you could see the dash is all peeled and warped, the seats were torn, the car was basically trash waiting for the pickup.

And sadly, I got to see its owner. Rather heavy set woman, throws her packages through the window, climbed in and took off. Several people though noticed the two cars, one being all pretty facing one that was nearly junk.

Sad.

Well last night i took the 88 for a drive, got swarmed by 2 cops, 1 unmarked car and other marked, weird thing is the cop who came to me knew me and has been to my house more then a few times calls me by name. no reason to pull me over, asked for my papers, then was checking the vin number on the car and inside the door and checking everything. asked me how long its been on the road, im like aaahh a year but i havent drove it much in the last month so im just doing some rounds around town. then decided he was going to search my car. im like want me to open the trunk and he says no thats fine lol, i coulda had the trunk full of something good and he never known. JERKS. like the cop knows who i am knows i have driven that car, has past me all the time driving that car like what the heck. I woulda jumped in the Z and drove around to see if they would stop me again maybe they would like to see the inside of it LOL. but it was pretty low on gas.

Then today i drove the 88 to work and then came home and drove the Z for a couple hours.

Was at work yesterday trimming this 450 feet long cedar hedge and what did i see driving down the road.. that black GTZ i have seen around but havent been able to flag them down. pretty sure its a gtz but man it sounded sweet driving by

filled up the tank straight 93 octane, also just sat there and pictured in my head different colors that would look pretty good for my winter paint job. i thought about hugger orange, black, or back to orignal red, i even actually thought about black rose metallic like my other car.

Maybe its your driving style...

I parked it in the garage due to possibility of hail today... otherwise I would be driving it since my Legacy is under the knife till the middle of the week or so.

Nah, i was just driving normal around town, i probably do under the speed limit in town and generally dont drive like a mad person LOL.

Friday night in the 88 i was just driving along and they turned the corner and seen me and turned around and pulled me over up the road, 2 cars with spot lights on and everything and made me get out and searched my car plus checking the vin plates to make sure it matches the ownership, and the cop that was checking everything knows who i am and is probably the coolest one of the bunch i dunno what their beef was.

Then in the Z saturday night they were coming up the road beside me and come out and followed me a few blocks and pulled me over, their reason.. checking for driving and driving then they asked me a million questions is this your car blah blah blah checked all my papers and off i go.

Not like its a big town, theres 10 streets maybe lol, and they all know who i am and know what i have been driving for the past year but just randomly start following me around and harassing me. if this becomes a habit ill just start reporting them for harassment and that will solve that..

Weird thing saturday night coming home from my fishing trip i had a car in front of me pull over and let me by then comes out behind me but stayed back a ways and flashes their lights, couple miles up the road they come flying behind me and past cutting pretty close to me and just kept flying.. i didnt recognize the car but noticed a antenna on the back, probably undercover trying to catch people for street racing maybe. i think they are just having some blitz of some sort going on. but when i get stopped every day thats a bit much...

Was on my way to a job site this morning and seen the black gtz ive been seeing around but had to stop for gas so couldnt catch up :cry:

Guess what I found out today?

There are 4 BERETTA'S IN MY TOWN! Including mine of course. 3 bases and my Z. I found this out today, cause I stopped off to see if I could buy this red base sitting in someone's yard. Been there not moving for nearly 2 years. 2.2L with the 5 speed, and a blown head gasket. I pulled into the drive today to talk to him only to see a white base parked there.. lol So I pretty much knew that one wasn't going to get sold at all then, but asked anyway. Turns out his brother in law drives the third one, an Adriatic blue base. Way too funny man.

I gave him the address for this site, to let him know that there is a community for the beretta's, since its apparent that he likes to have them. :D

Drove over 100 miles today too on the Z, just rolled it over to 230,090 today.
