Cory Cain’s 1992 GT 3.1
Here are some words from Cody about his GT:
At the age of 15, my parents made the deal they would buy me a first car, of their choosing, and if I liked it, I could pay them back for it. We looked around for a car for awhile and eventually, one Saturday morning, I was shocked to see a white 1991 GT sitting in the driveway. Through my high school life, that car was my best friend, and cleaned better than my room. Once out of high school I made the decision to trade her in. This past May, at the age of 30, I started feeling nostalgic, and found this little girl just a state away. A very good memorable road trip(with mom, dad, and a brother), I drove her the 4 hours home. What a blast from the past, and what fun little cars they are. Thank you again for enough votes to get her on a calendar, I’ll never forget it!
Indygurl – Jessica Van Ness’s 1990 Indy 3.1
Here are some words from Jessica about her Indy:
I bought my Indy in March of 2012, with 136,000 miles, from Allegan, MI, the city I grew up in. A friend told me of a guy that used to have a bunch of Berettas. The Indy was the only one he had left along with a bunch of parts off past cars. I bought my Indy for $250 and had it towed home due to a blown brake line. It has been through three fuel pumps and I had to strip and clean the interior due to the infamous water leak. We drove a 2000 mile round trip to Berettafest in Maryland 2016 (our first) and did great! I’m hoping to drive it again this year but we will see. The car now has 225,000 miles.
NJ93TY – Nick Romash’s 1990 GTZ 2.3L Quad 4 HO 5-Speed
Here are some words from Nick about his GTZ:
I found this car on Long island Craigslist in 2010 or 2011 by accident. I wasn’t really looking for another Beretta but Quad 4, 5-speed, low mileage sounded good. 17,xxx original miles, $1500 firm. I called the guy and had to buy it the same night I talked to him. And I did. Turns out the car was on the same road my Aunt lived on in New York about nine houses up.
I had the car for about a year and a half before I started working on it. I had been searching and collecting NOS parts for it. It needed a lot of work, mostly cosmetic, but I was prepared. Once I had everything I needed I started ripping into the car.
Everything came apart: glass, bumpers, interior. Once it was stripped I brought it to my paint guy and let him do his thing. After a few weeks I got the car back and started putting it back together. It was a long process but totally worth it. I’m glad the car was finished in time for my first Berettafest in Ocean City, Maryland [Editor’s note: Where it won Best of Berettafest, by the way].
Below are a few pics of the car when I first got it and as it went through its restoration process (open full article to view).
