They have compared performance—on rough roads, in iranV, over hills, through saml anil mud and water! And they have proved, lo their ronipliMu salisfarti»n, the «ame things that hundreds uf tlinnsaiuis of Chevrolet owners are proving in their daily driving: How much more smoot/i/v a car travel* with genuine, fully-enclosed Knee-Action.
