The Studebaker Avanti was a brilliant car that could have saved Studebaker if it arrived earlier, wasn't delayed in production and if Studebaker could actually be saved. It didn't, it was and it couldn't. Nothing could save Studebaker by that time but Studebaker got a lot of "mileage" out of it anyway. The cars Andy Granatelli developed were interesting. When they hit the roads Avanti's remained rare enough to get shouts of delight from people. Corvettes by comparison were almost commonplace. Women looked great driving them but they weren't "chick cars". Anyone here own one, now or sometime in the past? Race it? Customise it? Love it?
