Double Surprise for a lot of folks E VERY time we publish the price of a Buick, it seems to surprise a lot of people, because they, come in and tell us so. They just can't believe that so little money buys sucli a lot of car —but it's a fact, as the prices published here will prove. And that brings us to the second surprise— which is how much power and performance—how much comfort and room —what a long list of standout engineering features you get for the price. Take power. You'll find that no other car at the price of the Buick SPECIAL pictured here delivers the horsepower you get from its high-compression, valve-in-hcad Fireball Engine. Take com fort. The best thing to do is try the deptli of its seats —their width—and the headroom you get in this Buick SPECIAL, and judge for yourself. Take the ride. This Buick has big soft coil springs on every wheel, plus the solid firmness of a torque- tube keel —and the way this combination smothers the bumps is something that's hard lo match in cars costing a thousand dollars more. Take the way it steers. Buick engineers have given this light- handling beauty n special "front- end geometry" that almost does the steering for you —even brings the front wheels back to a straight line when you come out of a turn. And you can.add to all this Dynaflow Drive*—that puts magic smoothness into every mile you drive —and practically repays its extra cost by the way it protects the whole driving mechanism, and by the dollars it adds to trade-in value. So if you have been hoping, some day, to own a Buick—what's holding you back? If you can afford any new car—better come in and see us now. LANGSTON-McWATERS BUICK CO.
