Between my 8 automobiles and 16 jukeboxes I have been busy. Today I finally had time to take my 1981 Avanti out for the maiden voyage. I probably put 15 miles on and drives like a dream. It’s been great weather for driving classics.

Living in Illinois, my '76 is stored from November-April.  I usually start getting antsy around this time of year to enjoy the car and have to wait until Spring to get it out of storage.  I'm thinking about the trips I'll be taking it on to South Bend for the May SDC Meet and the June AOAI Milwaukee meet as well as a June trip down Rte 66 in IL.

Took my 1980 out today for the first time in a while. Still trying to get a keyless entry to work on the door locks but figured I needed a break.

That sounds like a great idea! It should be pretty straight forward. Now you got me thinking.

Ouch! 6 months in storage would drive me up a wall. I drive mine nearly all 12 months to shine and show around here. Safe travels to SDC and AOAI and enjoy that beautiful 76 Avanti!

Gentlemen, These beautiful cars are meant to be out on the road!  Avantis will always draw looks and admirers at any stop you make on the road.  I got my '76 in January '11 and have driven it more than 53,000 miles, all around the Midwest, East coast three times, out to Colorado and also to the West Coast.  I'm anxiously awaiting Spring to get it out of storage to continue the adventure, 2022 edition.
