The Black-Grey ’89 Beretta is dead, and it will cost too much to fix, having put so much money in it so many times recently. I’m going to have to sell it as is, sitting in East Otto.


I never really bonded with the car like I did my Horizon. I got it from my Mom’s estate after she died in the Spring of 1994. At the time, it had never seen a winter, and had about 4,000 miles on it! Now it’s just under 100,000 miles, had some dents and rust I couldn’t aford to have fixed over the last couple of years, and I haven’t even cleaned it properly in a LONG time. My Mom always said she would give it to Christina when she was old enough to drive. I don’t know if she was kidding, but I was hoping it would somehow last until then, so she could at least drive it once around a parking lot or something before it had to be junked. Anyway, I’m considering selling it on eBay, and converting the money to a savings bond so Christina will have it when she gets her first car someday.
