Mobil special is a good conventional.
A Lada with manually adjusted drum brakes sounds like a fantastic car.

I have run it in my Trailblazer. Good stuff. It replaced Exxon Superflo at the SN/GF5 change over. It is also bottle for Walmart as SuperTech in some areas.

Motor oil is not the lube you should be thinking about on your honeymoon. Unless they make food grade motor oil.....
