...and I will probably will be the only Studebaker/Avanti there. I am actually looking forward in talking to people about my car (1971 Avanti II). But I am also wondering what misconceptions and ignorance I will run into. I am both anticipating and bracing for it at the same time. ;)

I will give you a report tomorrow evening.

Ted; be prepared, you can expect to hear lots of:

"Didn't Studebaker build those in Canada?"

"Those are the ones with the Turbocharged Engine!"

"My Uncle had one of those and it went 165 MPH!"

"When Studebaker moved to Canada they had to put Corvette Engines in them"

"Yeah the Guy that built these is in Jail in Cancun Mexico!" :rolleyes: :D :lol:

Bob, it will be the Stuckey Apple Orchard Car Show in Sheridan. There will be about 100 cars there.

That is about the same number as there were 1971 Avanti IIs (122).
