That's quite interesting!:)..........Do you know if Granatelli owned it at that time, and did your dad possibly have any correspondence with him?

My father bought it off a friend who started it up in the early to mid 80's. Not sure when Granatelli owned it, but if he did around that time then maybe there is some correspondence around. It changed names to Auto Masters in the late eights from memory, maybe Andy found out someone was using the name and not paying?

I will ask him the next time i see him.

ps Auto masters is still in business.
