Has anyone noticed this ad & questioned this guy ? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130320968068&ssPageName=ADME:B:WNA:US:1123

He claims that they are from an Avanti dealership and are Studebaker Avanti advertisements. However, look at the page 4 page. In it the author talks about the Avanti II and how he has owned other makes of autos. Doesn't sound like somthing an auto company would advertise. Reads more like someones college term paper.

The artwork looks like ad copy, not showroom brochures. Ad copy is used to make print ads...my Dad owned a newspaper back in the 1960's and I remember seeing a lot of such artwork. Some of it was generic and some provided by businesses such as car dealers for him to make up ads for them. The printed stuff looks like someone's history of Avanti and may or may not be genuine from Avanti Motors. It could also be copy for an article on the Avanti.

That SDC mirror he's selling - is that something that was offered thru the club store at one time?

Looks like nothing more than a home-made history of Avanti. I found mis-spellings on every page. And stapled together???? Like an auto manufacturer would present sales brochures stapled in the top left corner. I cannot believe anyone would bid money to buy this item.

In 9th grade, I did a research paper on the early (wagon and carriage) days of Studebaker. I'll start the bidding at $75.00... Any takers? :D

I'd come a lot closer to paying you $75 than I would $104 for that item. A LOT closer.

Ok, Matt, now that you have opened this can of worms, when are you going to put that report in TW? For free........

Wow, $104 for a term paper. I'm getting my typewriter out of the attic. Anyone know what the "genuine" mirrors went for ?

Bob, I don't even know if I still have that article... But there were probably just as many false statements as true ones. :D

At least my 9th grade English teacher thought it was worth an A. But what did she know about Studebakers?
