    The aerial shot shows its greenhouse that (to me anyway) looks a lot like a Hawk.
    Without the triangular rear post (or sail panel) it in no way resembles an Avanti. Looks like a 'vette from the side.
    As for the greenhouse view - no way on the Hawk. It has straight glass, not a curved fastback.

    You need new specs, Boyle? (lol)
    I'm stickin to my story!
    The clean, smooth sides (helped by the window vents) looks to me like the Avanti. And the backswept "B" pillar reminds me of a Hawk.

    Or maybe I've been hangin' around Studebakers too much lately...

        I'll say it before and please bear with me while I repeat myself, I think the Barrett-Jackson auction has ruined the collector car hobby.
        I guess I just don't see our hobby as "ruined". I personally have a lot of fun with it, and see others doing the same within their budgets. I have been to several BJ auctions and enjoy seeing the "people show" as much as the "car show" . Great entertainment, but I don't think that it in any way, shape, or form, defines our hobby. Let's face it...a well restored FI 57 Chevy or Hemi 'cuda is worth a ton of money...BJ or no BJ...but you really don't need one of those to have a good time with old cars [8D]

            Let's face it what are you going to do with a Million Dollar car anyhow? Put it in a nice garage and dust it occasionally. Now, with a Studebaker you can have fun fun fun until daddy takes your keys away (sorry that was a Thunderbird) LOL. I will surely be driving mine when I get one, I don't see the point of importing one, restoring it then looking at it.
