Anyone heard of Conklin motor oils?

I have seen them around but are a scarce breed somewhat like schaeffers. I do know they use moly but I have no idea of the base oil, additive levels nor what type of mo they use. I have never seen any oil analysis with this oil so imo, If someone was to use this, I'd not start out with a 15,000 mile drain. I would like to see this one day as for the price they are charging, it would make sense there has to be more to it that just that.
I was at a Flea Market near where I live and I ran into a guy who was a rep for a company named Conklin. He showed me some of their oils, and they do contain moly, and recommend a 15,000 mile drainage intervel, but they are expensive ($7.35) a quart. The specs listed on their site don't really seem all the great, and I was just wondering if anyone had any info on them. I did tell this guy I was using Schaeffer oil and he told me that they make an excellent oil, so he at least seemed like an honest guy

Isn't Conklin the guys that make all those carnival rides? Does the oil have a picture of a clown on it?

Seriously though, pick some up and send in a VOA. Then run it and send in a UOA, ASAP.

Does anyone have any additional information?
Group III or Group IV?
This guy I work with is trying to get me to switch to it. I looked it up on the net. Not a lot of information.

How does it compare to Schaeffers and Amsoil ?

Thanks to anyone that can help.
