#musclecar #musclecaroftheweek http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - A Studebaker, on Muscle Car Of The Week? We think this original and extremely low milage Avanti R2 with the Paxton Supercharged 289 qualifies. What do you think? It's a great car from The Brothers Collection that deserves some recognition.
(www.TFLcar.com) On this episode of The Fast Lane Classics, we take a look at one of the most unbelievable American Cars to come from the roaring sixties: The Studebaker Avanti. ( http://www.TFLcar.com ) It was the early 1960's and one of America's quirky car companies was on the ropes. The company was Studebaker and sales of their somewhat dowdy and conservative cars was decline. So what did the designers at Studebaker decide to do? They swung for the fences and designed and eventually built the Studebaker Avanti. Was it the right car but the wrong company or was it the right company but the wrong car? The fiberglass body Avanti didn't save the company but Studebaker had built and designed a car that looked like it was from 2003 instead of 1963. Check out another Classics Reveled as TFLcar brings you another up close and personal look at a classic cool car.

Sadly, Avanti declared bankruptcy just a year after we tested this. However, the company lived to see another day and build a few more cars, too.
