Hi there! I stumbled across this forum because the bad ass 65 Avalon you did cane through the Google search. I just picked up a 64 Avalon, my first boat ever. Planning on resto modding it as well. Just got it running and taking her out on Elsinore tomorrow lunchtime, for a few hot laps. I would love to pick your brain for some advice. Please let me know if that’s ok with you. Thanks, Boris. 408-479-0753.
