AMSOIL and Racing
Many oil companies produce specialty racing oils for elite groups and do not offer them to the general public.
For instance, several popular oil manufacturers produce racing oils offered only to NASCAR racers. AMSOIL
receives inquiries as to why the company does not offer "special," higher-quality or NASCAR oils.
However, all AMSOIL synthetic motor oils are already formulated to a higher level than competitors' oils, and AMSOIL Dominator Synthetic Racing Oils are no exception. They provide maximum performance and superior protection to all racers, regardless of their level of competition. The same AMSOIL Dominator Synthetic Racing Oils that are used in the engines of AMSOIL corporately-sponsored racers such as Scott Douglas and Brady Smith are available to everyone.
Every professional race car in the world uses synthetics, and most of them have been using AMSOIL for decades. Many have a lot of money at stake with their "big oil" sponsors, who want you to believe that what is advertised on the car is what's running in the engine.
Indy Car racing legend Bobby Unser spoke at the AMSOIL 30th Anniversary Convention. Unser is a 3-time Indy 500 winner, has 25 overall Indy Car wins and is a 13-time Pikes Peak Hill Climb winner. He told the audience how his race car differentials could not survive more than one race up Pikes Peak without needing to be rebuilt, until he started using AMSOIL lubricants. This experience in Bobby's early years of racing began his long relationship with AMSOIL synthetic motor oil and lubricants in all his race cars. Bobby went on to say that "AMSOIL is the Best Synthetic Lubricant made, the Standard to which all others are judged." Hear it from Bobby himself in the video below.
Extended Drain Intervals mean Less Waste Oil, Less Pollution, a Cleaner Environment
"Improperly disposed used oil," according to the Environmental Protection Agency, "is the largest single source of oil pollution fouling our nation's waters. According to the American Petroleum Institute, it amounts to "up to 200 million gallons of used motor oil... dumped every year down sewers, drains or in the ground." API reminds us, too, that, "A single quart of oil can foul thousands of gallons of water."... Continue reading this article
AMSOIL News UpdatesHow Fast Does A Model T Go?
There are car collectors who still love their Model Ts though. One of our local car clubs here in Superior, WI did 120 miles of cruising this weekend, and a good time was had by all.
Not only have the colors of cars changed dramatically over the years, the speed at which they travel has likewise changed. It takes a lot less time to drive from New York to Boston than it did 100 years ago.
Not everyone has the same need for speed, but it's comforting to know you've got it when you need it. Here's a trivia factoid you may find interesting: When railroads began to carry passengers, there were great debates about their safety because some scientists proposed that if a train went faster than 25 miles per hour it would suck the air out of everyone's lungs and they would die.
In the event that you really were interested in knowing how fast the old Model T Fords went, you can Google it and it might lead you to a forum where Model T owners are discussing this very thing.
If you're wondering which motor oil to use for your Model T, you'll find the answer to that question somewhere else. In the event that you have a vehicle of more recent vintage, the best place to find the correct viscosity is the lookup guide on our home page of AMSOIL.com. Check it out.
-Bringing It All Back Home: AMSOIL Street Rodder Road Tour Visits Youngstown
With Jerry on the road the heavy lifting was left for Mary Ann who recruited her friend Dawn Damron. It was a beautiful drive that included a little excursion through Amish country. When they arrived at suppertime, even Jerry‚Äôs mother Barbara Dixey and brother Jack joined in the festivities which included a great meal of sloppy joes, vegetarian chili and tasty desserts. Jerry gave everyone a tour of his garages, toy boxes and house. The road warriors had a chance to see that Jerry not only enjoys talking about cars, he‚Äôs also a collector, albeit on a slightly smaller scale than some of the incredible collections he‚Äôs had the privilege of sharing over the years in other places and spaces.
-Hellcat Aerodynamics Might Just Take Your Breath Away
Assuming you feel a need for speed, it may be of interest to you that Dodge has stepped up its game with the 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat. Not to be outdone by Ford's recent crop of Mustangs and Chevy's Corvette Stingray Supercar, the Hellcat boasts some serious power, reminding us of those muscle car rivalries of days gone by.
You can't really say, "Cars are fun again," because they've always been fun, but the Hellcat is certainly turning heads and making an impression.
CBS news anchor Dan Rather once quipped, "Americans will put up with anything as long as it doesn't block traffic." And you can be sure this feisty beast is not going to be blocking traffic.
Last week, StreetLegaltv.com posted a story by editor Michael Harding on how the Hellcat's aerodymics enable the car to surpass 200 miles per hour. That's breathtakingly fast, and there aren't a lot of places you can play at that speed. But it's nice to know if you need a little extra thrust, you've got it.
-Johnny Cash's Rolls-Royce for Sale
We're all familiar with his deep baritone voice. "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash." So began his live concerts for a time, identifying with down-and-outers, performing in prisons, and representing the heart of Americana. He was The Man in Black, and his iconic career crossed multiple genres of music from rock and roll, rockabilly and blues to folk, and gospel.
This week a Rolls-Royce once gifted to this star musician was in the news, going up for sale at auction, with no reserve. The Rolls was given to Cash by ABC back when he had his television variety show. It was used to ferry him around for more than a decade before being sold to a private owner in the 1980s.
The history of Rolls-Royce is a long one, nearly as old as the auto industry itself. From the getgo it was a premium car that turned heads and emptied bank accounts. There were only 100 Rolls-Royces a year being sold in the United States when adman David Ogilvy was hired to expand the company's reach into the U.S. market. Ogilvy agreed to do what he could with the $50,000 they paid and he produced a single, well-placed ad that tripled the company's sales. The ad headline proclaimed, "A 60 miles per hour the loudest noise in this new Rolls-Royce comes from the electric clock." In the following year 300 new cars were shipped to America. You can see that ad and read the rest of the ad copy here.
Charles Rolls was the first undergraduate at Cambridge to own a car, and needless to say he had a passion. When he met Sir Henry Royce the two hit it off. Royce's attention to detail and pursuit of perfection were just the kinds of qualities Rolls valued and the two set about building the best cars in the world.
Today the company continues to maintain the same high standards that put them in the history books. The manufacturer still pursues the same attention to detail. They are also aiming to expand their market by appealing to a new generation of young style-driven owners. Car & Driver magazine, in an article featuring 25 cars worth waiting for shines a spotlight on the new 2-door version of the Rolls-Royce Ghost called the Wraith. If you're a billionaire the $300,000 price tag is probably chump change.

-SEMA Feature of the Week: Holden Tribute G8
In addition to being invited to SEMA as a booth vehicle for Spec-D Tuning, Passarge will be on hand at SEMA Ignited to showcase his ride after the party. SEMA Ignited is a brand new after-show that brings out exquisite SEMA booth vehicles for public viewing consumption. This event allows the public and media to witness the industry‚Äôs latest and greatest parts in action after spending the week behind closed doors. We caught up with Passarge to get a little background info on his G8 and how he came to bring inspiration from down under to the US.
What drew you to the Pontiac G8 GT model? Is this your first project vehicle?
The Pontiac G8 was just an awesome set up at the best price. With it coming from Australia, I knew the look and performance would be great. I have been on the car scene since I was 16 and have fixed up many cars.
Tell us how your vision came to be. What is it about this car that makes it ‚Äėyou‚Äô?
After I bought the car and found out they raced them in the V8 Supercar Series, it became my new vision for my car. I like to put my own little flare on all my builds. I tried to make it look like a true V8 Supercar, but put my own style on it since the parts for this car are not available in the states. Many of my parts had to come from Australian companies.
Tell us about your partnership with Holden. How did you become the first non-race vehicle to receive their support?
To make my car look the part I came into contact with a great person from the Holden Racing Team. In explaining my vision to him of this tribute build, he knew I was serious about this and would give the upmost respect to the image of the Holden name. They offered me the actual race graphics off the team cars. I am the only one in the US with this awesome privilege and I am a Holden Race fan for life!
This will be the third time this car has been to SEMA. I am blessed that every time I change the car up to make it look different, someone wants it for SEMA. This will be my final build on this car and it will stay a tribute car to Holden Racing.
Why did you choose AMSOIL? Any favorite product?
I chose AMSOIL because of the quality of product and their reputation. They seem to take care of us non-professionals. There is no favorite product from AMSOIL. Every product available for my car, it‚Äôs in there. I take pride in my ride just as AMSOIL takes pride in their product, and that's why we make such a good match.
Has the car received any media coverage or car show awards recently? Any memorable moments on the car show scene?
Holden Media will be doing a build story after SEMA on the G8. I hope to get into a few magazines after this build, which will most likely be overseas. I love going to car shows with the G8. I have removed all badges and it has changed so much in appearance that most people don‚Äôt even know what it is. Only the true Pontiac and Aussie race fans know what the build is about. I think my car is one of those ‚ÄúLove it or Hate it‚ÄĚ cars.
We love it. Do you have a favorite quote or motto that describes you?
My quote I often use is "To each their own". I never dog someone‚Äôs ride‚Ä¶everyone‚Äôs vision is different, and that‚Äôs what makes the car scene so great.
