Was some of this video from San Luis Obispo? I made one meet there, but don't remember much about it. BTW, I like those swing out Avanti seats at 16:02- sort of like Chryslers some time in the past.

Great footage, nice share! To early for me to remember, but it would be interesting to know how many of those vehicles survived to now in driving condition.

I can not open to view but more than likely it is the same meet that we went to paul as I have seen some in the past on it, You had the 64 wagon and I had the 65 Daytona and the kids were little, not sure what year that was 71 or 72 my oldest daughter was 10 she now is 53, how time does fly.

I was at the San Luis Obispo Zone Meet in 1970. Drove from Oregon in a 1961 Rivièra Blue 4 speed Hawk.

The first 13 + minutes are from SLO, I recognize the Madonna Inn parking lot, then it progresses over to the Madonna Plaza across and down the road. The time frame must span over 3 or more years as there is a white motel in the background (Royal Inn) that as the video continues is under construction and then isn't at all. I know that motell from having stayed there last spring when my middle son graduated. Oh, Bob, if you were there in '71 and your daughter was 10, that makes her the same age as myself. To clarify that means I'm 39 and I'm betting she's 25. :lol: Get your math right!

Alex, I remember the Solvang and Madonna meets very well .At that time we were in The Studebaker Owners Club and I think Paul gunder was the president. In 73 or 74 my brother Jim was 13 years old and won the 54 commander four door that was being raffled off at the Madonna meet . A couple of weeks later my whole family met with Chuck Potter and picked the car up at his Studebaker salvage yard called "Autonauts" l think it was in Wilmington Ca . My dad drove the stude home to Lompoc with no problems except none of my brothers or I wanted to ride with my mom in her vw sguareback!

No Kent, my math is right and the year might have been 71, a very good meet and my 65 Daytona won it's division.

Thanks for the great post. I was looking for my '70 Avanti II (Nate Alman's) but alas it was not to be. It would be interesting to see how many of these cars can be traced to today.

At 10:50, the 53 Hardtop looks like John Kunkels. If so, he had a 340 Mopar with a home built overdrive behind his automatic. First I'd ever heard of back then. Fantastic car.

Yes, I'm sure that was your dad's car. I think he bought it from Chuck Potter.

The Avanti survived to now in driving condition. I bought it from the original owner; the paint has faded, but it's still the only George Barris custom '65 Avanti.

Yes- Dad bought her from Chuck.
But that was after Chuck bought her from Dad... ;)

What matters now- she's mine.

Add mine (the '57 Parkview) to that list... :!:
