  1. From 100MPH, Studebaker stated that a disc brake equipped vehicle stops in ....?..... less feet than the same vehicle equipped with drum brakes . 1) 75......2) 100.......3) 150.....or....4) 200
  2. Nice try Gary, but I believe that you're 'swinging after the bell' again!
  3. On my '83 Avanti, the 'mouth' of the driver's side horn points directly down.....The 'mouth' of the passenger side horn faces the fan shroud....and both these horns have never been replaced or moved.
  4. Exactly!....Loewy initially wanted a removable forward roof panel(s), and thought a roll-type bar would be necessary for overall roof rigidity.
  5. It certainly did.....but apparently there was another reason!....HINT....this 'reason' was eliminated from final design!!
  6. Peddler says 'Yes'......is he correct?
  7. Exactly!
  8. No one remembers this very special Avanti?
  9. When driving a Studebaker Avanti, what feature did Raymond Loewy say "oriented his senses to the road"?
  10. Mr. Sherwood Egbert came up with the 'overhead switch' idea that was quite unique for the 1963 Studebaker Avantis.........True?
  11. The Avanti 'AVX' logo was originally penned by Bill Lang..................True?
  12. Any thoughts on this one?
  13. Sorry no, the fluid entry point is located at the bottom of the cylinder and, as in most disc brake systems, the bleeder screw is at the top.....Answer..FALSE!
  14. Makes sense, but no...there was a more 'engineering related' reason! (?)
  15. Right you are!....And thanks for posting this great photo!
