Your car is one that I think gets the Beretta name out there. It's hard to forget.
Was the Quad your first car? Oh man those stickers.

Thank you. I try to promote Berettas as much as I can by going to shows. I love hearing the question,"What is it?" And its great to hear,"I used to have one of these."

The Quad was my 3rd Beretta and I had it at the peak of the Honda Civic craze so the stickers were mainly to mock them and provoke races with the unsuspecting rice burners. I only lost one race and that was against a '05 Toyota Celica that ended with me crashing my left front fender into his right rear quarter. After the incident I decided to sell the car and it eventually ended up in the hands of Mike Pride who has done an amazing job of restoring it to the machine that graces the month of February in the 2012 Beretta Calendar.

Wow he did do a good job. Funny thing is he put more stickers on.

The one in the second to last post. It could be something on my end. Also I'm not a member of You Tube if that has anything to do with it.

Ah they are in one of the good parts of the state, I'm in the a$$ part of the state.
Lets put it this way: I like wide open space where you can see for miles. All I see is crapy buildings.
Sorry, I could tell you in a PM if you want.

Reminds me of my first Beretta: 90 Q4 GTZ...the "Quad Rod". I stickered the crap out of that thing because I was 16. haha Probably didnt help that I was in school for graphic design at the time.

I love the 2-tone on DUBS too. I thought long and hard about a black/gray job on my 91.
