And so, quite frankly, he began to wonder if it weren't all too good to be true. Could any motor car be as wonderful as this latest "car of cars" was reputed to be? Well, he's decided to put his eyes and cars to the test today. And the verdict is unmistakable! It's a joy just to lean back into those deep, soft cushions and look out over that graceful hood into the beckoning highway. And what a revelation the car is to drive! ars A curve in the road ahead? He simply follows it with the £>rc of his hands and the car responds with perfect obedience. A hill in the offing? He just nudges th? acceler» ator and the car sweeps up and over as effortlessly as if it were traveling- the level rpad. A stop light coming up? He presses his toe-r- ever so gently-'on the broad bracing pedal and comes to the smoothest, surest stop imaginable. Yes, it's true what they say about this newest of Cadillacs. This is Jar and away Ike finest motor car ever to travel the world's highways, * * * * How about you? Have you heard the wonderful things they're saying about the 1957 Cadillac? Well, the proof is in the driving~-and the facts about Cadillac have never been more convincing. W. State St. ERNIE WILLIAMS PONTIAC-CADILLAC Phono 1998
