Now you have absolutely no excuse to run anything but the original oil put in your car

I wonder who in the USA is such? I can find it in various places online in Europe.

Not that I want it, honestly, there isn't any reason to use this oil in your car unless you just want to be all original.

... for the concourse win at FFO obviously?

The scrutineers will be checking the dipstick residue I'm sure.

It would be fun to have a can as garage art.

I was just thinking the same thing. The judges are unlikely to know the difference.

Regardless of what it says on the can, unless you're talking 2017 spiders or the new 500, you can bet that isn't the oil that went into your early spider. API standards have changed many times since then.
45 years with a spider, that's a long time
Restoring the '79 for the second time, you're never finished ;)

Yep -

"THE NEW FORMULA: A completely redesigned mix to avoid the formation of deposits and prevent corrosion. Suitable for all engines, even those turbocharged subject to high level of mechanical and temperature stress."

It's basically a can with normal old oil in it.
