    How do you suppose the framework at the rear of the top got mashed forward on the top car? I'll bet it hurt a bunch?

    I suspect these are thumbs that SpeedDemon has come across on some site due to their small size. With a little searching you can find the bigger images, use tineye.com and the link of the small image.

    Sometimes you can find some interesting facts about the picture, sometimes not.

    I kind of liked what I found on this one - [​IMG]

    No backstory, I imagine. 1/71; did they wait to get the film developed, did the car not sell until after languishing on the lot, or did the first owner become a dad and trade it in on a four-door Valiant?

    My grade school pals' older brother bought a used 1964 Avanti in about 1966, exact same color as this one, had a 289 and automatic, just a four barrel, not a supercharged version.
    He took us for a ride once in a while and boy that thing hauled, I seem to recall the speedo reading 125 mph.
    Not sure why but he referred to it as his high speed coke bottle.
