Just got my March issue of HMM...very nice "Buyer's Guide" article on the '63-'64 Avanti. It's quite complimentary and any incorrect items are minor at best. It really doesn't even mention the common problem areas Avanti restorers can face...hog troughs (outside cost of replacements), etc. Some of the values look a bit inflated, but if it helps with the values long-term, it's a welcome thing.

If there's a downside, it's that anyone not familiar with the Avanti might get lost in a restoration due to the known (to us) headaches.

I would hope that any restorer would do a bit of research before jumping in the deep end.
Yes, there are beginners out there, but hopefully they'd start with a 65 Mustang or 57 Chevy....and not an expensive orphan.

I tend to overthink car purchases...are there really guys like that out there?
