  2. Update to the Avanti Night at LaSalle Kitchen & Tavern this Wednesday in South Bend. The Avanti Special with be 2 Avanti Burger for $30.00 and will include fries. The Loewy Cocktail is $8.00 and is based on an old French cocktail called the Corpse Reviver If beer is more your style the will have the Avanti Amber Ail from Studebaker Brewing for $4.00 I am still working through city red tape to get the reserved parking in front of the restaurant. This special will run all evening but I plan on being at the restaurant between 5 - 8 to see all the cool Avanti's Bill
  3. Avanti Night at LaSalle Kitchen & Tavern Wednesday May 4th will be Avanti night at the LaSalle Kitchen & Tavern in Downtown South Bend. There will be a special Avanti themed burger along with a Raymond Loewy themed cocktail. There will even be special parking for all Avanti’s and who know we may even have a little Avanti trivia thrown in for fun. Plan on having dinner with your Avanti friends on Wednesday May 4 during the SDC International Meet. We will have more details in the coming weeks. Please let me know if you are interested in attending. See you all on the 4th. Bill
  4. From a forum post on 12/13/14 (ASR Sunroof repairs/parts) Sky-top roofs were originally manufactured in St. Louis, Mo. They provided a lot of the sunroofs directly to Avanti. My 84 had a Sky-top roof, I am not sure when they discontinued using these in Avantis. Ernie retired and sold the business to Midwest Metal Fabrication of New Haven, Missouri in late 1991. They are somehow associated with Wenning Enterprises which has a website. They are located at 201 E Industrial Dr New Haven, MO , 63068 573-237-5500 I talked to them earlier this year and they indicated they still make and supply parts for the roofs but no longer repair them. They indicated that the son of the former skytops parts supplier also located in St. louis, Auto Air Company now has a repair shop in Union Missouri and will repair these. I have misplaced his name and number but calling Midwest should provide that information. I also know that Dan Booth has parts for Sky-tops. I know this is old so I am not sure if it is still accurate.
