    Do you get to the Lafayette C&C often? Look for me in a 911 Turbo (also silver over black), at least until the C8 arrives.
    Ha, was there today in my C7. Probably going to sell it. PM me your contact info.

    Just noticed the post, pic, and comments, and was surprised by all the commonality. I live in Colorado,have a white 2lt z51 scheduled to build in Feb and had a 1963 R2, 4 speed, 411 posi, Avanti gold "super car" That is the one car I wish still had of the more than a few I have owned, including some Vettes. Such is life I guess. I feel pretty certain we are all in for some more great times with the C8.
    Wow, six degrees of separation! Where are you, let's get together with the C8s! PM me if you like.

In those days rust was eventual in most cars and the Avanti was on the road to solving rust with the glass body. As I was working up a deal Studebaker was talking bankrupt talk. I convinced myself at a young age that parts would not be available if the company failed. With that youthful knowledge I bought a 64 GTO. That's a true story. Charlie aka cutnout
    Can't go wrong wit ha '64 Goat!

    How can you not like this friendly Forum! Honored to be a part of it, even if I only remember to log in every few weeks.
    Thanks for having me!

    This will be my seventh Vette, currently driving my '14 Z51, first one in Colorado. LOVE IT!
    I'm a gear head, so I can't wait to have the latest piece of engineering magic from The General.
    My Z51, 2LT, FE4 has a TPW of 3/2.
    Also doing a nut and bolt restoration of a '63 Avanti. I love the hands on work and always wanted an Avanti. Maybe done next year? Click image for larger version  Name:	Corvette Stingray 2020 ordered.jpg Views:	348 Size:	145.2 KB ID:	92826

The R 2 was a 289 suoercharged v8 ...wow...can you imagine a manufacturer having consumers decide....do I want round headlights or square? I tend to see such beauty in the round
    What I find so endearing are the wheels and tires in this photo...just serves the body style and is so period correct..

    really well done...post up photos of your 64 avanti...Love to see if we can see the differences ..


    will you he keeping your 2002 corvette and your avanti as you take in your 2021 c8?

    just a beautiful vehicle.

    thank you for sharing.

    heres a video im sure you ve seen but for others possibly to enjoy..

    JB-

    Studebaker made running changes to the Avanti, depending on what was in the parts bin. So, depending on build date, you could have gotten round or square lights. I like the round ones best. Man, that car is sweet!! I see the wood grain dash inserts, a '64 item for sure.

    I can see that the Avanti is as good as new, maybe better. The Avanti 2 was marketed in Seattle but didn't do well. I believe there is a market--but what do I know. Charlie aka cutnout
