I believe I am using the correct string method on this objective and if so why does it keep saying error?

class DreamCar:
    def __init__(self, make, model):
        self.make = make
        self.model = model

    def __ str__(self):
        return 'My dream car is a {self.make} {self.model}.'

You have a space in def __ str__(self): after the second underscore and before str, which gives the first set of __ a different color in Markdown.

To use an f-string, you can put the letter 'f' before the string. If you don't include the f, the returned string contains the brackets and the names of the variables, and not the values of the variables.
