Marc BMAN GTZ  1995 Z26 3400 Auto

I remember when I saw my first beretta and fell in love. I bought my first one in 2001, an ’89 GT, burgundy in color with a testerossa kit on it. A few years later, when the motor went on it and the rust was pretty serious, I purchased a 1990 Z from a good friends of mine who had purchased it a couple of months prior. I paid him alot more than I probably should have but I wanted the car bad. With that, BMAN GTZ was born. I invested about 20 000$ into it, custom BMAN GTZ plates, new paint, wheels, tires, brakes, suspension, custom interior, ect.. Motor went on it when going to store it in 2004 so a rebuild was done in the winter of 2004. About 7000 kms after the rebuild, some lady cut me off, I t-boned her and wrote the car off. I was crushed but vowed to get another. I waited a little less than a year and found a 95 Z26 not far from me, got it for 3700 and began the new project. As a way to honor my old beretta, I transfered my custom plates from the blue car over to this car, even thought it was a z26. The entire interior was torn out minus the dash and custom painted, the seats custom redone, sold the back seat to another member, custom audio setup, custom trunk setup. At the same time as this, I also redid the entire suspension, bought wheels and tires, and so on. I still have a small list of things I want to do but this is her now, enjoy.
