Thanks for posting the results Tom. I don't know why the "Most Valuable Avanti" thread was closed either......Seems odd that the moderator would close a thread on this forum! :rolleyes:

Tom means the thread on this Studebaker Forum, which alerted Stude folks about the "Most Valuable Avanti" poll, was closed here last night. :(

My pleasure. I was interested in the results. I had chosen the one which won, but my studebaker knowledge is pretty limited compared to many of you here and I was eager to see what the consensus was.

All twenty of the listed Studebaker Avantis are/were incredible cars which we'd all like to own...however, Studebaker's 1960's performance legacy was truly established by the records #9 Avanti (the John Hora car) set at the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1963! :!!:

A wonderful car...in beautiful condition! :)

My favorite would be the Avanti that Rod Serling "Twilight Zone" owned.

I'm not familiar with Serling's Avanti (other than I heard that he indeed did own one)....Can you tell us any more about the car?...Thanks!

Other Studebaker Avantis of historic interest would be Dick Van Dyke's, Ricky Nelson's & Johnny Carson's

All I know is that it is a burgundy 63 R-2 and is owned by a friend of John Hora owner of the #9 car.
