My first Avanti purchase was in 1963 when I purchased a new R-2 4 speed and drove it for 1 year sold it and ordered a Olds 442 convert and so on. At the president time I have three PACKARDS plus a few others. In the Winter I live in Clearwater Sand Key, Fla and in the Summer on Lake Mich North of Traverse City, Mich.
I just purchased a 89 Avanti Convert # 526 and drove it from Denver Co to Traverse City, Mich. This is a supper handling car I will fill in the details later.
