    Here in the greater NYC area SunOco 110 leaded is no longer to be found at any gas stations via the pump, only place still with product in the ground is out in Riverhead Long Island......the only way to get 110 is via 5 and 55 gallon drums......I am thankful to be getting TEL in cans from Wild Bills Corvette...simple to add a prescribed amount to the tank of 93 no-lead.

    I have a '48 M-5, If I spend 5 years and $50,000 on restoring it, it -might- bring $50,000, but then again it might not.
    Don't 'spect I'll ever find out.

    Having a 1952 Commander overdrive 4 door and a 1962 Lark V8 Overdrive 4 door, I don't have to worry about rising values. I never expect to see one of them at Barrett Jackson, et all

    Old guys unloading their expensive toys before their rapidly aging target market drys up. I was that market a few short years ago.
    Still have a collection of Studebaker cars and parts, but nothing expensive enough that I'm particularly financially compelled to divest of it.
    I won't be able to take any of it with me of course, but nothing to worry about, I can continue to enjoy my ownership right to the end.

    Ya, that's how it works. I remember years ago when supercharger parts were hard to find at swap meets....when the prices jumped up to 800 to 1200 seemed like every other vendor had them for sale.....

    What's with the plethora of Avantis for sale?

    Avantis. Every search engine I use, Avantis used to show up in small numbers compared to other Studes. Now they are all over the net for sale. What's up?
