1984 Avanti II from North America
One of the best and most beautiful cars ever made
As a rare classic car, the Avanti is cheap to own and parts are easy to get. The hard part is finding someone to work on it. I do much of my own work. When I got mine it needed a complete front end rebuild and a carb cleaning.
The 84 and 85 Avantis are evolved cosmetically from the Studebaker and the earlier II's. The all leather interiors are FABULOUS. Recaro seats were standard. The dash and the headliner are all leather. The car is very solid, quick, and for a V8 it gets good MPG.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Have you had any problems with the paint?
I read elsewhere that when Steven Blake bought the company, one of (the many) changes he made was a new paint process, but there were many problems with it, necessitating that most, if not all, of the 1984-1985 models be repainted.
Any other problems since you posted this review?
