      Being a retired person and on fix income I have nothing but ill feelings for someone like this, hope he rots in jail and dies soon so as not to be a burden on us tax payers, and is a bad name for the Avanti.

          And almost as bad -- he made his millions from Federal subsidies to ethanol distillers!

            There's absolutely no question - this guy is a scumbag of the first order. I wonder how many trusting Studebaker enthusiasts he hooked into his investmant schemes.

            He probably won't see much time in a real prison though. White collar criminals usually end up in minimum security places that are luxurious country clubs compared to the places that violent criminals get warehoused. There used to be a federal prison in Danbury, CT that was considered the place to be sentenced if you were convicted of a federal white collar crime - more like a hotel without the ability to leave when you want. Sort of an enforced no-pay vacation. Personally, I think each white collar criminal should have to share a cell with a violent criminal. Maybe if that were the case there'd be a lot fewer crimes of this sort.

                Maybe the "Master" mentioned in that article sold off the "AVANTIAVANTIs.

                Of course, we can still hold out hope that the likes of Maserati/Lamborghini/Porsche "AVANTI" rights as well!!!

                    The additional jail time mentioned for his assorted crimes in the article most likely means that a prison Dr. will be signing his death certificate. He's better enjoy his 4 months of home confinement with the monitor and GPS while the colon cancer is treated. Its likely the last time outside that he will have. Avanti owners and Avanti fans should breathe a sigh of relief that Avanti was not mentioned in his list of crimes.

                        I heard the news last night from some other cars guys. I about fell out of my chair when I heard that he is out of the federal pen at least for a while. I'll bet that he's staying at his parents house in Lakeville.

                        I also noticed they did not mention Avanti, which is probably a good thing. I won't hold my breath on it, but hopefully someday, somebody, ANYBODY, will keep the Avanti in production.

                          I would like to see someone resurrect Avanti as well, but in today's economic climate and the uncertainty of our economic future, that looks bleak at best. You never know, though...as Avanti has been brought back to life several times against all common sense by others, though only Nate Altman made it a profitable concern. It was easier (by comparison) to do so when he did. Today it would take some mighty large cajones and very deep pockets to do so. It was nearly ten years before the last iteration of the Avanti came about...it can happen again. It doesn't have to make sense...economically or logically. It takes a car guy with a vision.

                              Well, to keep both the detractors and the civil discourse enthusiasts happy, might we offer:
