  • Beautiful November day to take out the 87 Avanti

    What a nice day today here in Joliet for being almost mid November. Had some time to do some more work on the 87 Avanti, and take it out for a spin. Sure can tell the difference with it have a more modern GM chassis under it than the 1985 and ealier Avanti's having a Studebaker chassis dating back to the mid 1950s

    Nice looking Avanti!....The tu-tone paint 'works'....and the more modern chassis would understandably have its advantages....Enjoy!

        I thought getting involved with Studebakers "was/is a case of acquired taste" BUT not ugly face

          Enzo, I hope your are not meaning Enzo Ferrari
          Faccabrute you have misspelled . It should be Faccia Bruta meaning ugly face
          Acquired taste . I have been a life long Avanti owner and still admire it"s styling

              Understood, I am just a 1st generation Italian from New Jersey, trying to keep it honest. I do like the car we are looking at here it just needs to be lowered as do most Avanti II's in my opinion

                Bob you need some Italian 'comfort' food to put you in a good frame of mind....how about a good plate of Braciole?

                  It might be a good idea for forum members to master the ENGLISH language before attempting to converse in other dialects!
