Pontiac is the fastest-selling Straight Eigbt in the world today. Throughout the United States, it is outselling every other car in its price range by a comfortable margin. It has the size and the style and die price to win buyers in a big market. This is proved by these facts: More Pontiacs were built and shipped during the first five mouths of 1933 than during all of 1932; and June^sales of tins popular car exceeded May sales, which is an unusual record and further proof of Pontiac's fast-growing popularity. Buick is, of course, the great popular favorite among all Bwdiuui-uriccd cars. During the first five months of 1933, more Buicks were sold than all other eights priced above §1,000 combined. Furthermore, themimberof Buick* and Pontiacs already in operation here should assure a dealer who operates an efficient service station a good business in parts and service. Th c capi tal requirem en ts are rea son- able. Previous automotive experience is preferable, but not essential. We want a good business man who is looking for an unusual opportunity ... a man who will devote his time and his abilities lo selling and servicing those two great cars—helping each' owner to get the most pleasure, satisfaction and economy out of his purchase.
