The occasional questionposed here of the fate of James Bond and (rather incongruously) Chitty Chitty Bang Bang author Ian Fleming's 63 Avanti has prompted me to bring the question to a larger audience.

I read the UK magazine Classic and Sports Car and monthly they have a column "Look Familiar" where you can write to see if an old car you're familiar with still exists (In the UK cars usually keep their license numbers for life, so it's a it easier there).

I believe the well known photos of him and his 63 were taken by Studebaker.
Could someone post them here so I can attach them with my email to the magazine?

Thanks.

Thanks, I have that, but I was looking for better quality...and confirmation that I could get permission for them to be published....though 50 years on, that probably isn't too big of an issue.
