    Maybe this is the way to go, but I will miss the sound from the R1.

      Well it's probably the wave of the future and my wife even drives a Prius but when it comes to my Avanti II, I'll be turning the key to hear the roar of 350+ HP and the attendant Sturm and Drang until I can't open the door.

        Well, one has a really nice trunk tub, and the other one a "pretty decent" rear suspension.
        If these fellows would come back from the dark side, they might make themselves useful.

        It's just a phase they're going through. Well, a triple phase. Maybe they'll race one on a short circuit, if they don't meet too much resistance. Currently I have a whole series of objections. A battery of them, you might say.

          I was thinking someone will ask about the R4 that was in this Avanti....But I guess Not.

            OK Jack, I'll bite. What happened to the R4? Was it one of your hot rods? [8D]

              Nope The car was raced around the Raleigh area in the early 70' timeframe. The block a B block was damaged and went to the dump. But the heads intake ect were put on a modified 289 block which was removerd when sold to the electric car folks. The engine is for sale but I can not bring myself to pop for the amount being asked. and thats all I know.

                My wife drives a 335 hp 1999 Camaro SS. Her next car will be a 400 hp
                2005 or 2006 C6 Corvette - 0-60 in 4.3 seconds and 28 mpg highway. We
                like to keep our money in the US - except for the Holden, but that is
                owned/powered by GM anyway.

                Make sure you tell your wife, hold the button for 3 seconds.
