    Good article. Well written. I did not learn a whole lot of new information but enjoyed reading the writer's take on the car and it's short history.
    Thanks for sharing this, Bill.

      I owned an Avanti from 1971 through 1990 and I miss it dearly. While it was only an R-1 with four speed and no power steering, I did unintentionally in the 125 mph range with the clock steadily climbing before I realized that it was a lot faster than I ever intended to drive it.

      That car was like an airplane in that once you were in the driver's seat, you became part of the machine.

      I miss it sorely...

        Makes me have second thoughts about having sold mine.
