In an emergency, If the factory hood release fails on an '89 Avanti...how would one open the hood?

Take out the plugs in the inner fender and reach in to the latches with a long screwdriver.

Apparently not on the '89's Gary....I've spoken with two '89 Avanti Coupe owners that tell me Studebaker's emergency way to get the hood open was eliminated by 1989.:o

Anyone else have an idea here?

There is a emergency release cable on the drivers side, inside the wheel well.
