          How much ZDDP is really in STP? The current owners of STP will not publish the Zinc and Phosphate levels so we Studebaker owners are using other products.

                It is a serious question....
                But remember... Andy is 87 years old, and some of these things happened 50 years ago...
                I am looking for a few legit questions.
                The best and worst rememberances are on the list.
                Let's see a few more.
                Give it some thought.

                  I wonder what his reply would be TODAY to the "R" Series Question. I read somewhere he said it stood for "Race" I would really like to know who coined the R series engines phrase and what it really stood for.

                      Who really were the guys in management who were committed to saving Studebaker vehicle production and who actually were speed bumps that ultimately led to diversification? What was his favorite Studebaker to drive out of all that he experimented with until 1963? And did he have a favorite he tweaked in the later years?

                        Come to the AOAI Banquet at Glendale. Perhaps Vince Granatelli may be able to answer some of these questions. You don't have to be an AOAI member. Just need to be registered for the meet.

                          #1.) When will the "Andy Granatelli Hall of Fame Museum" in Auburn, Indiana actually open?

                          #2.) Need more specific location (address) where the "Granatelli House" is located in South Bend.

                          #3 thru #10 he answered the last time we spoke.

                              With the famed "R5" engine in a Avanti, they took it to 196.62 mph. Does he think they could have got a little more top end performance out of it; if they had the time? What would he have done different on that engine; if he had a chance to redo it?
