Doesn't the big kick come from being first off the mark and winging up hills as though they weren't there? There's only one place in the world you can get such things—irom a power plant that's up to its job. But here's the interesting thing the new Buick proves: With enough power, you can have that flashing action — and economy too! Our FIREBALL design and Compound Car- buretion let us use a standard high gear that has the same economical result as so-called gas-saving devices. They step up mileage as much as 10% or 15%, wing you down the road at 50 on a 30-mile fuel diet They even make driving easier, since they give so much reserve power that you'll have less need for shifting gears, whether it's to; top a hill or pick up quickly in slow-movin* traffic. We're not saying style and comfort and size don't count. We wouldn't have worked out mass-stream" styling, BuiCoil Springing and Bmck's new roominess if they didn't.
