[DML] Re: Delorean and Avanti mentioned in Car and Driver



Hi Claude,
  I'm actually currently stationed here in South Bend, and I've been learning a bit about the Avanti.  The Avanti was originally produced by Studebaker in South bend, Indiana.  Then Avanti was purchased by Newman and Altman who built the Avanti II.  Then Avanti Motor Corporation was sold to Stephen H. "Steve" Blake on October, 20, 1982.  Michael Kelly purchased the assets of and rights to the Avanti for $722,000 in 1986.  John J. "J. J." Cafaro, 37, purchased Kelly's 47.5% share of NAMC on September, 1, 1988, and promptly renamed the company the Avanti Automotive Corporation (AAC), which went belly up.  Finally, in August of 1992, a fire in the Avanti factory seemed to rule out any possibility of resuming even limited production.  So, we haven't seen a good amount of Avanti's being produced in over 15 years.  
  Interesting stuff!  Now back to Delorean Conversation!
