In 1962 at age 14 saw my first Avanti and fell in love with it. Over the years I've probably seen less than 10. In the spring of 2013 I was driving through Kentucky and saw a pale yellow Avanti sitting in a yard. The next day I returned and started a 2 week haggle over the price and finally bought it. Fast forward to Oct 2014 the car is ready to go to the paint shop after rebuilding virtually every part. I'm not a purist so car now has 4 wheel disc brakes, an injected 355 engine, and a totally new front suspension. It took me 50 years but I now have my Avanti.
