I'll be the first to admit I dont know much about Avanti's.I was reading a article about the Blake years of Avanti production and there was a picture of a Avanti II that was raced at Daytona in what I would assume was the IMSA series.Wonder what ever happened to that car?

A couple of guesses....
I think Gale Banks had something to do with it, he (his company/heirs?) might have it.
Or
It was part of the bankruptsy sale to Kelly....
