Post-War Project No. lor 2 —The Motor Trip of Your Dreams * You know some challenging hills to be mastered with skill. You know some glorious vistas that will refresh your war-weary mind. You're probably impatient even now for your typically American Post-War Project No. 1—or No. 2 at the latest...a trip by car! But don't hope for a brand new car. Even in ordinary times, the new models are a year or so in development. After Peace, the auto industry will hustle, but you'll be months ahead of it by keeping your present car fit. Don't let today's limited mileage wear it out needlessly I You're driving so seldom, so slowly, and heating the engine so briefly, that your little-used wartime car is endangered by engine acids—once minimized by old-time speeds, frequent use, and sustained engine heat. But now you need special precautions, and you get them by having your engine OIL-PLATEU with Conoco W h motor oiL OIL-PLATING, made possible by the added synthetic in popular-priced Conoco N"> oil, seems strongly "magnetized" against all draining down from inner engine surfaces—for hours—days—and longer. Now on chromium-plating, when raindrops stay a while, you don't fear serious corrosion. And you needn't fear it when acid stays a while in your OIL-PLATED engine. The ordinary combustion process must leave acid when your engine stops. But you can lessen the worst risk by OIL-PLATING now with N'A oil at Your Mileage Merchant's Conoco station.
