We do not have Menard's unfortunately. I remember guys going to the one in Minot, ND and getting killer deals. I am happy seeing 20 bottles on the shelf at Walmart. I am going to start stock piling some just in case. It actually has me rethinking a roller cam for the 424, so I can get it done before I die.
Summit and Jegs carry VR1, if you're able to order it and have it delivered up there. I haven't checked Walmart here, but I doubt they would have it. I don't think any of the auto parts stores stock it anymore, and if I'm not mistaken, they can't/won't order it either. This is almost as shocking to me as being unable to obtain 60 series 15" tires at a tire shop. I understand not stocking the things, but not even being able to get them?
Some but sources and brands are limited, Mark Remmel(Cutlassefi) sent me some, probably wasn't supposed to. I know there is a high 1600 ppm ZDDP 15W40 called Collector Automobile Motor oil (CAM) oil, designed for cars like ours, Boss Lubricants makes for them out of Calgary, Alberta. It is sold at specialty retailers, I know at least one place in Regina, 1.5 hours away carries it.
