This SCREAMS the 60s
When these Avanti cars by Studebaker were first introduced in the 1963 model year I was blown away even as a youngster. I was always interested in cars but at that time I was also just starting to learn to drive and I soaked in everything I could about the new cars.
My family lived in the country on the main highway. For years I while I was outside playing in the summer I would occasionally hear the roar of an engine like nothing else. I would stop and go to the edge of the road and it would always be the same car, a 1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk, supercharged. I loved that sound.
Then, when the Avanti came out that driver traded in his Hawk and now roared by in his new supercharged steed! Not even a Corvette could stop me like the sound of that Avanti. I promised myself one someday but I have been through a lot of cars including several Hawks but still looking for that Avanti. This video is a little long but very interesting. Next we will give you a Road Test!
