    Avanti Seat!

    Sherwood Egbert had an interesting, safety related idea for the right front (passenger) seat of the Avanti ....This idea never came to pass...anyone know what that idea was?

    Why?

    (An Older Post From 2013)..........I was 'taken' by this statement...and I couldn't agree with it more....Frankly, it made me feel he was describing Me!!!! VIVA AVANTIS!!!!!!!!!
  10. Well, it's really a 'last resort' action'........but anyway, a forum member taps on his screen name at the top right hand corner of view screen....A list of requests pops up.....On the list near bottom is "ignored users"......tap that and it explains how to block anther forum members content....Once again, it's a last sad resort, however sometimes it's really the only option when dealing with an unreasonable person.
  11. HINT...Let's get some fresh air & light in here!

    Avanti Clutch!

    No, ...but it sounds like a good one!
  15. Yes, I get it...foolishness like this can be entertaining IF your not the person being harassed....Look, I realize the man has issues....but this habit of his of ONLY responding to one of my trivia questions if he thinks he can trip me up REALLY GETS OLD!....And he's been doing this for years! Yes, regnalbob indeed got under my skin...and I simply feel the only way of keeping him from getting even worse is to block him on this forum.....Ed
  16. Avanti Trivia Players...........I apologize for the back-and-forth I've been having for quite some time with regnalbob......I am now going to permanently block him. (yes, I did that before, then relented and un-blocked him...but I've really 'had it' with the guy. Let regnalbob harp/pester someone else! (Hopefully he wont)

    Egbert's Idea!

    Come on Bob...we all know you wear panties!!!

    Egbert's Idea!

    Seems like Bob has his panties in a twist again...and...as usual...he's 'most likely' incorrect! My answer (MENU) came from an interview of Otis Romine, a key player in the early development of the Studebaker Avanti, when he sat down with Mr. Loren Pennington, a (then) professor of history at Emporia State University. (This interview took place in 1972) I'm not taking anything away from Richard Langworth......I enjoyed many of his articles in the old "AUTOMOBILE QUARTERLY" publication. However, there were issues later on that I wont get into here...but anyone interested can look up Mr. Langworth's biography. No, good old regnalbob is once again trying his best to irritate me......he should know by now that I laugh at him!
  22. Also, I believe Studebaker specified two different clutch release bearings for their Avanti models, although I think the two were later on interchangeable.
  23. Although Studebaker specified different clutch pressure plates depending whether an Avanti was equipped with a three speed or a four speed standard transmission, the clutch driven plates were all the same......True?
  24. On Avanti ll models, usually of the '70-'85 vintage, what are the two fiberglass body panels that should be checked occasionally for adhesive (bonding) breakdown?
