Good quality dyno oil.. Change it by months not mileage... If car is not using oil, just keep oil clean...The most expensive synthetic gets just as dirty...2cts

I don't want to start a debate but I would stay clear of synthetic and use good old fashioned motor oil. As suggested, change it by time. Not to scare Todd, but low mile 40 or 50 year old engines can be prone to failure, based on my experience.

The guy who build my 66 283 said stay with 10W30 and don't use any of that new synthetic or lighter oils. the old engines like the good old standby. i do mine every 3 months. including it goes in storage with fresh oil and a fresh change when it comes out. there is still moisture in the motors while they are being stored and the oil soaks it up.

Do you mean Dina oil? (Dinasour) LOL
 I am not loyal to any brand but the old cars get traditional oil. The new cars are running synthetic.
