  1. Here is the YouTube (Audio only) clip of Geoff's presentation at the S-N Museum:
  2. Sadly, another chapter in the long Avanti story closes with the passing of Geoff Newman. I was fortunate to have been at the S-N Museum in July during the AOA-Indy Chapter's Avanti 60th Anniversary celebration. Geoff was a featured speaker there and shared many details about being part of the Newman-Altman years in South Bend during Avanti II production. He told a very interesting story about the manufacturing of the cars there, 1965-1983. He was quite a character and will certainly be missed. R.I.P. Geoff. You were a great man. https://www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/name/geoffrey-newman-obituary?id=38417827 (attached photo taken 7-9-2022 at the S-N Museum) .................. Harvey Snitzer .....

  3. I was there. The people, the cars & the weather was excellent. Mike Baker gathered 35 Avantis for the photo shoot on Friday. The Avanti Time Line at the Concours d'Elegance at Copshaholm on Saturday was impressive. I had a great time there with my Avanti friends (met some new ones too). My car ('71 Avanti II RQB-1659) ran great down & back (453 miles driven) from Canton, Michigan. (My gold car on arrival on Thursday at The Inn at St Mary's)
