Default New from Midland, MI

I've known about the site for awhile. Learned more about the site when one of the members here bought a beretta from another member then joined the beretta forum..LOL

I'm looking for a Wrangler style Jeep right now. I'm trying to sell one of my Berettas or trade it for one. I have a line on a 97 TJ in Canada right now so maybe that will work out for me. All of them I find around my area are piles of crap!

I believe 2 of the guys I work with are on this forum as well. I see a Great Lakes sticker on the one kids Dodge so I kinda figure and they both have jeeps.

My name is Sara, I live in Midland, MI, have wanted a Jeep for awhile now but haven't had any luck. Had a guy want to trade me a Jeep for a Motor I have and then disappeared off the face of the earth. Typical weirdo!

I have a 97 Explorer XLT
96 Beretta Base
95 Beretta Z26 <--one for sale
and an 1985 Honda Shadow 700 V Twin.


I spent my 4th of July out at Silver Lake and saw a lot of nice Jeeps and other Rigs out there. My brother has an 87 K5 Jimmy we took out there and blew up after an hour on the sand Did the same thing last year on the same day..haha So after that I was stuck on the dunes with his friend who has an H2 but is afraid to actually drive it like it should be driven, bcause it has 24s on it and just isn't meant to be driven off road, mind you this was after he broke his 79 Bronco because he forgot to strap the battery down and slammed the battery into the radiator and poked a hole through it...hahaha He got stuck at the top of test hill because he parked in a retarded spot and then a guy in a red jeep made fun of him for getting stuck. It was hilarious!

Anyways I just wanted to say hi, I know several people from the board and figured if I joined it would increase my chances of finding a nice Jeep :)

Here are some pictures of my toys.

I can't seem to part with this truck! I love it for some crazy reason, probably because it's been with me for 6 years now.


95 Z26




96 Base. This one has all the extra goodies, Custom CAI, Lowered, etc etc

Sort of. I work all over the county. I work for Mosquito Control so I have no clue where I'm going to be until I get to work.

Thats what everyone says. It's a job for now, I'm having a hard time getting a job in my degree field and am in nursing and EMT school so I'm hoping something pays off soon.

And with this job I have learned more about these dang bugs than I think I ever wanted to know!

Your lucky to have a job in the area with the way the economy is. I know a lot of people who are out of work and have nowhere to go.
