Does anyone know if Dick Vaux is still active with the club?  He's a friend of John Hull.

He definitely is!....he and that gorgeous turquoise '64 Studebaker Avanti of his!

Is there a chance he would sell it?

My gut feeling is probably not....however, you'd need to contact Dick to find out for sure!

I hope members in the northeast can attend the celebration of Dick's life, September 8 in New Hampshire.   Details are in the Boston Globe story about Dick, linked from this AOAI Forum post:

Also, read my review of Dick's book Dirty Work on Speedreaders, transportation book review website, recounting his expereince of retrieving the hijacked TWA jetliner from Beirut, Lebanon, in 1985. The review and his obituary will also be in the next issue of Avanti Magazine, in production now and going into the mail at the end of this week.  At the end of the review are links to order either a digital version of the book or the paperback version.

I haven't a clue Steve...I'd guess if the family doesn't want to keep R4892, we''ll eventually see it advertised for sale.

Certainly that's a Studebaker Avanti many people would love to own!:)
