Lots of new information and photos 9 April 2011
By Alan N. Basile - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
John Hull has done his homework with the new effort. Avanti enthusiasts already know much of the story of the Avanti. What has been missing is the visual history. Most of the photos in this new book have never been published before. This is a well-balanced presentation in a very pleasing format.

A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words 30 Jun. 2011
By Psdenno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What Mr. Hull's earlier book on the Avanti lacked, this one contains...and more. This book tells the Avanti story with a wealth of photos that chronicle the entire Avanti era. Many of the photos have not been widely published and that adds to the appeal of the book. Narrative is minimized and the pictures show the evolution of the car from its inception in Palm Springs, CA to it's current resting place in Mexico - a 45 year journey.

The book rekindled my own memories of first seeing a new 1963 Avanti in a dealer's showroom and, years later, touring the Avanti II factory with Eugene Hardig. I eventually bought a 1963 Avanti, had the opportunity to meet and talk with Tom Kellogg on several occasions, and corresponded with Raymond Loewy. As I mentioned, the photos that tell the story in this book brought back quite a few memories and I consider it a worthy addition to any Avanti enthusiast's library.

Found Wanting 29 Mar. 2012
By Royal James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book based on the reviews of others but found it to be seriously wanting in detail. It is essentially a picture book that chronicles development of the Studebaker Avanti and its later reincarnations after Studebaker ceased production. The book provides some useful information and it contains a nice chronology of pictures but the actual narrative is limited to three pages in the introduction, other than that it is pictures with captions. Glaring by its omission are details on the models, options, colors, and production volumes of the various models and reincarnations of the car. I found the absence of detail and historical context a glaring omission in a book dedicated to a classic vehicle. The book reads like a magazine and you can read it cover to cover in about an hour. I do not think it is worth the cover price.
