Wait wait wait... you sold a 71 Chevelle wagon for a Beretta???

Sorry, but if I had a Chevelle (preferably 66 or 69), it definitely wouldn't get sold to buy another Beretta.

Boys my guess is better MPG's. Oh and the other guess is that he is in Europe. I think I remember his name on a Beretta owners page over there. Just can't recall where.


keep'em flying!

i remember him now that you said that but i sure as hell wouldn't sell a chevelle for a beretta let alone a wagon.

things may be different over there but over here most people use a car like that for a sunday cruiser not a daily driver.

For what I know there were serious issues with the Chevelle that were over the level he could deal himself.

I understand doing this sorta, I personally wouldn't ever do this. The ONLY Beretta I'd even consider doing this to get would be the Convertible.

Keep in mind though, it was just a wagon.
