USED TRACTORS W HEN the talk turns to cars and car engines these days, that's a topic you hear much about. So it's fairly interesting to note (hat, even back before the war, Buick engines like this one were touring the testing grounds with compressions as high as 10 to 1. Even later than that this same big Buick power plant has been filling our engineers' notebooks with data on 8 to 1 compression ratios.

Two or three interesting points. ' First of all, that this big Buick Fireball valve-in-head straight-eight already has a compression ratio that gets as much out of present fuels us any engine on the market. Next, that these ratios can readily be stepped up to fit higher octane gasolines as they become available. A.nd probably mosl important of all, that high compression is only one measurement of a good engine. There's the fundamental matter of engine efficiency — power output per cubic inch of displacement, engineers call it. On thut score, Buick stands where it always has — jusl ahoul tops in its field! \Vhich means, in very simple words — better go see for yourself. The fun you get from your car —the pleasure and satisfaction it gives you — are best measured in just one place —behind the wheel. Russell Phillips Tractor Co.
