            GREAT article, Lark Parker. [^]

            FWIW, John Andras (Most call him "Mr. Avanti") of Florida does have two Avantis... (Wait.. What's the plural?? )

                Yes, a good story by Mr. Parker.

                Matthew, I believe it's AVANTEES. No, wait, BondoBill's got that as a registered trademark.[}]

                      Thanks.

                      Credit must be shared with the TW editors for finding and providing the buggy and the car photos. And to Bob Palma who provided option numbers when I couldn't find my references. Also Wayne and Gwen Remaly for letting me use their suitcase for pictures.

                      We don't want to discuss it too much as I am an active participant in a conspiracy to keep those without the July TW in the dark as long as possible.

                      Another good job on your section again Matthew.

                          I continue to be impressed with the communication abilities of members of the forum, including the verbage in TW. Another great article.

                          The good news: My copy arrived tuesday in middle Michigan.

                          The bad news: It showed up at the same time as the &@#$%!#@ hot weather from down south. 96 Deg is way to hot for we Northern European decendents. Lower Mason/Dixon dwellers, keep your %$#&*^#@ weather to your selves. [}]

                          I almost burst into flames finishing the 800 Watt sound system in 54K. [] I must admit, B. Fuller, B. Holly and Pachebel sound darn good.

                            I received mine yesterday & I must say, it just floors me how just when you think it cant possibly get any better, WHAMMO, it is! I used to first hit the classified pages, but this issue is a "cant put it down until you read the whole thing". Kudo's to all. It was especially nice to see all the great questions from many familiar names in here.

                              Well, I'll take a stab at the linguistics: Avanti, as a verb is Italian, I believe, and meanings vary from "Come in!" to "forward" to "advance". In Latin, if there was such a noun, Avanti would be the plural of Avantum. In this context I think it is a proper noun, a name, and just as valid and free standing as "Bob" or "Jon" or "Kalamazoo". There, now I've made Bob and Jon free, standing, and valid. You're welcome
