    In 1962, I checked out the Avanti at the Studebaker dealership in North Hollywood Ca.
    The salesman quoted me a price, taxes, and liscense included, of $4,700.00 out the door for an R2.
    I was making about 125.00 a week, doing concrete work, and figured I had no problem making the 3 year payments.
    ....However I was 17 years old. The salesman said that I would need a co signer to complete the deal.
    My Dad refused to co sign, and the deal fell through.............Probably saved my life.................

      Still hoping to own a '63 in the near future. Fingers crossed.
