That's what your liuick was built to lio. Years and years of that kind of driving are in it — especially when it gets the interested, informed car care this fine an automobile should have. That doesn't mean just periodic lubrication, a body wash, battery check or bolt-tighten. It means thorough attention by competent Buick men — attention that keeps n buiclc always a liuick. Bnicks arc our babies. liven the smallest tie- tails are handled the way they should be for a liuick. \Ve have Buick tools that do jobs better and quicker. \Vc have men who know liuicks hist. \Ve have Buick-engineered parts that are precisely riglu for your car. Put that all together and it's liuick car care. \ Pretty clear, isn't it, that here is where your lick will receive the best attention? After i soul. h< Coolair "TOP" SECRET One of !he things thai play a part in Fireball snap is Buick's wafer-thin steel cylinder gasket. Just )5 thousandths of an inch thick, it's a "must" for the high compression this powerful straight-eight is designed for. Other kinds that arc thicker cut down Iho compression and the car's liveliness. In carbon and valve jobs, or any other where this gasket must be replaced, only this Buick gasket will assure the fit Buick engineers intended. No wise Quick owner would have any other in his engine. Jost another example of how you gel more for your money — in major adjustments, lune-ups, lubrication or anything your car needs — when you make sure it gets Buick car care.
