What car? • Not even the last pre-war models could be duplicated instantly, and the auto industry will outdo those—all of which will take time. You'll find it hard to wait. But how easily you can give your present much-needed car a great opportunity to outlive the Axis. your engine from acid. This unavoidable product of combustion was formerly rather safely expelled in regular driving, at normal speed and heat. But your semi-occasional, slow, short drives nowadays barely heat the engine. Chemists know that this invites strongest acid attacks, yet engines OIL-ELATED by Conoco Nta motor oil have proved able to resist remarkably, and you can see why. In patented Conoco N*-h motor oil, a synthetic of apparently "magnet-like" energy joins lubricant closely to inner engine surfaces, as if to stay—like any familiar plating. In not all draining down to the crankcase, even at a standstill, the OIL-PLATING "walls off' the inner surfaces from the hungry acid. And so you'll have a good car that much, CONFLATING. >. with Conoco NH> ... at Your Mileage Merchant's Conoco station.
