View Full Version : Lost Avanti

I sold a R2 Avanti on ebay to a nice elderly couple that arranged shipping with DASH auto shippers and they lost the car. It seems they tried to deliver it early when the owner was out of town and the driver dropped it "somewhere" and DASH can't locate the driver or the car and is not be overly helpful to the couple. The car has been missing for 10 days.

I hope you've informed them that word gets around and their reputation isn't going to be worth diddly soon.

I wonder what DASH stands for? Dash from the scene?

Holy crap Batman, we have a problem!

What sort of half a**ed operation could up and lose a collector car as well as their driver??? In the age of the internet it only takes one blunder along these lines to ruin all the good work a company has ever done.

I would be curious if the "driver" was their employee or a contractor and if they conducted a background check on him/her? Could be the "driver" made off with it and plans to "sell" it to make a quick buck. Who has the title?

I hope that they had insurance on the car and were not just depending on the shipping company's insurance. What part of the country did the Avanti disappear in? What is the color and S/N of the Avanti so that we may be on the look out for it?

That picture (in the eBay listing) brings back memories. In the early 1970s, I bought an original owner, dark brown (obviously a color change) 1963 Avanti from Art Rust Jr. (TV sportscaster). I don't believe that I have ever seen another dark brown 1963 Avanti.

On the insurance, most shippers carry a lot of liability insurance, like a million dollars, but when it comes down to loss or damage on individual cars, the fine print brings the limit per vehicle (they usually quote insurance figures for an entire load) down to $10K. I have heard of too many people that have had trouble trying to collect on shipper's insurance. At least up to now, I have always had my own insurance on a vehicle before it is ever loaded by a shipper. You have shipped more Studebakers than I have, but I have probably been involved in shipping more vehicles.

Funny you should mention 10K, that's exactly the size of the bond DASH
has for damage. How they can ship cars worth five times that is a mystery.

Please don't hound DASH, it's up to the owner of the Avanti to work with them, we don't need to jump in unless they ask for help. Right now, they are giving DASH a few more days to find the car.

Streaking Studebakers, Batman! Sorry, I just couldn't help it. I really loved that program...

About the Avanti, maybe their insurance will only pay 10k. A lawsuit would pay considerably more. The couple who's car has been lost have a case if DASH doesn't come up with the car soon. I believe the operative term here is 'Gross Negligence.'

Hopefully the car is sitting in a warehouse or garage somewhere with somebody scratching their head wondering what it is, and where it came from.

I used to buy FL vehicles to sell on my lots here in NY. A few years back I was having good luck doing this so I decided to get into it a little more. So I connected with a trucking company that was recommended to me to truck them up here. I would go down and attend 4 auctions in 3 days and fill an 8-car transport...

Well, the first truckload was 5 days late, and one truck had front damage done by their driver (which they paid for)... the broker talked me into giving them another chance, so I repeated the process...

This time, when the truck was 2 days late, I called the broker... said he'd look into it and called me back... after dodging my calls for 3 more days, finally called to tell me he couldn't find the driver or my $60K worth of vehicles! Turns out the driver was a woman fresh out of driving school who got the vehicles loaded and drove north, but was so "stressed and exhausted" she drove the rig to her home and just parked it to "rest up for a couple days"... which turned out to be 4...:( When she finally did show with the vehicles, she parked on a sideways incline and the first vehicle off (Dodge Conversion van) slid sideways within inches of tumbling off the top of the trailer [B)] When I got there, she was sitting on the ground by the cab sobbing; and it was up to me to get the things unloaded...

All told, it was over 2 weeks to get the vehicles here; about a week of which that no one could find my vehicles....

Point of all this is- chances are good that the car will eventually turn up... and you can see why I don't agree that it's a piece of cake to just grab a West Coast car and have it shipped 3000 miles; my experience tells me otherwise... so I try to buy within my own driving/towing distance, even if it needs a little rust repair (luckily my 2 locally-found current projects don't have rust issues)!

A few years ago when I was managing an Audi dealership we supplied a TT for a raffle. The person that won the car was in New Hampshire and we were in Jersey.

Now, the winner could hardly believe he actually won a car and was sure there was some catch. I assured him there was nothing other than his income taxes to pay and that he would have his car soon. It took two weeks from when the winner was notified until the car was shipped to us by Audi. After making arrangements with a shipper we had used on numerous occasions I notified the lucky winner that he would have his car by a certain date. That day came and went. Numerous new dates, excuses, no return calls and then the driver and Audi TT were MIA. The guy who won was now more convinced than ever that we were scamming him somehow and he wasn't going to get a car and he would call me twice a day voicing that very concern.

Then he was contacted by the driver out of the blue and was told he would have his car on a Saturday afternoon. The excited recipient planned a party/barbecue around the event and waited...the car showed up at 3 am, long after his celebrants had gone home.

Thank God he won the car and didn't buy it from me.

The owner located the trucker, he says the car is in storage in Md, but won't tell him where. He's been prommissed the car Tues.

If the new owner is not satisfied with the answer that he is getting, he may want to contact the local law enforcement authorities where DASH is located and explain his car is being held hostage. Perhaps that sort of contact will provide some answers.

StudeDave, your thoughts?

On my antique insurance policy,any new car I buy is covered automatically for 30 days,then it has to be appraised.
I thought most insurance companys worked like that.

OK, I've heard of Studes with poor panel fit, but that's ridiculous. What happened to it? A train attacked it? Or..?

But look at how nice the breather on the engine looks. :D

I don't know about DASH, but I bought my Stude off ebay, and had
DAS ship it from Glendale Calif. It took 30 days to get it here,
but you could log on to their web site, and see where it was
roosting every nite. I was well pleased with DAS shipping.
