Default my 99 sc300 3 years in showcase/build thread

Bought her in December and have already put 4k on the clock (I live in a barracks only 1/2 a mile away from work). Plan to keep her relatively stock, only doing small things here and there. Well anyways here she is.









Here's some with my 92 Beretta and both of my burittos together.

nice cars!

My Girlfriend had a 89 GTU Beretta its easy to install a intake in the bumper, after this, the engine feels like really like a V6 the original air filter is too small!







and a little modded exhaust

I bought the Lexus to have a nice car. I still really like Buritto's. Just because they are not a luxury car doesn't make them any lesser of a car. I prefer the Beretta for local commutes,. The gauge of both cars goes down at about the same rate, but the retta has a 5 gal smaller tank and only needs regular.
I might not look as cool as everyone else, but atleast I'm not driving a corolla.

And boergy, You euro guys always have the nicest berettas, ours always have paint fade/peal or just look like crap in general. The cars do have pep, and my 3.1 5 speed will keep up with my sc.

Thanks!

its was a funny car the beretta, but the original front spoiler was lost from th pre owner with the digital gauges it was cool but the engine takes water from the cooling system both heads are new, the Dealer invested much money after the buy, but he runs never 100% perfect. My Girlfriend changed 2-3 years after the buying from the Beretta to 76er Camaro, also in red

Nice pick up. Glad you could finally find a clean one. What does the word base mean? You in the military?

I'm sorry, but I have to disagree. I would drive my Corolla any day over being embarrassed in a Beretta. Just saying. Guess I'm just one of those diehard Toyota fans

Matter of opinion. Berettas to me are sign of lack of wealth, that you had to "settle" for a car thrown together with drunken engineering and bits made by a fat man in Kentucky named Billy-Jo. But like I said....matter of opinion. It's not my car, so my opinion really is irrelevant.

Carry on!
