Whenever these dreams become reality again, we’ll get in our cars and SUVs, maybe go for a cruise, and top it off with a big feast with family and friends. Until then, let’s dream of driving a dream car (the ’50s and ’60s name for what are better-known as “concept cars”) on some dreamy outing. These are some the cars we want to drive to get us through, and out of, the pandemic…

Why is there an Avanti at the Corvette museum?

When the National Corvette Museum re-opens for general admission in Bowling Green, Kentucky, one of the vehicles on display will be a 1977 Studebaker Avanti II.

Say what?

As the museum shares the story, it was in 1962 that Bernard “Mike” Hammer’s stepfather took him along when he was shopping for a new car.

“He took me with him one, to keep me out of the mischief that I always seemed to find, and two, because he didn’t know the difference between a crankshaft and a camshaft,” Hammer said. “I had just stuffed a small block in a Sprite, and that thing was quick!”

Hammer and his stepfather ended up at a Studebaker dealership. Mike told his stepfather that the Studebaker Lark had been the Indianapolis 500 pace car that year. But while his stepfather was looking at a Lark, young Hammer’s eyes

2020 Q1 U.S. Car Sales Suffer Due to Coronavirus

After the past two weeks of devastating unemployment claim numbers, one of the latest economic canaries to enter the coronavirus pandemic coal mine are U.S. sales of cars and light trucks. Automakers and auto analysts have been anticipating first quarter 2020 and March numbers, expecting to see sharp drops in sales.

The quarterly sales numbers do not tell the whole story, because car sales were relatively strong in January and February, compared to a year ago. There was even a week or more at the beginning of March before concern over the pandemic took hold, but since then many dealerships have closed, particularly in major metropolitan areas that have issued stay-at-home orders. Some remain open only for parts and service.

If showrooms remain shuttered this month, April-and the entire second quarter—will look much worse.

Cox Automotive estimates a Seasonally Adjusted Annual Rate of 15.2 million vehicles sold in the first
