  • Ed George's Avanti in March 2014 MCR!

    Congratulations to Ed George for his 1963 white R3 Avanti making a good appearance in the new, March 2014 Muscle Car Review. 'Just got my copy in this morning's mail and flipped right to the article entitled,

    The Pebble Beach of Muscle Cars: The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals.

    The article says over 500 cars were displayed this year. Of the 500, 21 were chosen by Muscle Car Review Editors for special attention, with their own individual photo and information.

    Ed's R3 Avanti was among those 21:



    And if you peek behind Ed's Avanti, you see Eric DeRosa's Rose Mist 1963 R2 Lark Custom 2-door, part of the "Two Studebakers to GO!" display.

    Again, Ed and Eric, Congratulations. BP

        And I absolutely LOVE the "JT" prefix on what I presume are YOM plates on Eric's car!

          Craig, that plate was just pure luck. I was looking on ebay for a cheap set of year of mfr plates for the car a few weeks before the show, and that set with the "JT" prefix showed up! Only thing better would have been "JTS"!

                    Just be thankful you got one with "JT"! I tried to get an Alberta YOM plate with a 'JT' prefix as 1963 plates here also started with two letters of the alphabet followed by four numbers, but according to one of the vintage licence plate vendors, they don't exist. Apparently Alberta rotated their alpha-numeric combination every 3-4 years, and by chance, all the 1963 plates begin somewhere around 'T' thru 'Z' as the first letter. In 1964, they started with the beginning of the alphabet once again.
