I am in need of help with the str method using python

I have tried multiple lines of code, and I have been working on this for what seems to have been an hour it would be very helpful if someone could assist me with the answer. Down below is my latest attempt at this challenge, I'm not even sure if I'm close. Anything is helpful.

class DreamCar:
    def __init__(self, make, model):
        self.make = make
        self.model = model
    # insert your code here
    def __ str__(self):
        return f'My dream car is a {self.make} {self.model}.'

Hey William Matheny, you are so close!

Looking at the colorization of the code above, there is a space before str__.

This is a syntax error because __ is a valid name for a variable or method.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
