OLD FASHIONED mrm-wmii ptsriiiMY • UMMWUI, m BONDED SOUR MASH KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BQlmON WHISKEY • 100 MtOOf Y OU won't be the first to say that — not by 2 long shot. One of the first things you notice, •when you step from another make of car into Buick, is the wonderful difference in the Buick ride. Xhere are good technical reasons, if they interest you . . . Soft foil springs all around, the gentlest type of spring man knows how to make. A stout torque-tube, acting like the ONLY BUICK HAS AND WITS IT GOES: husky keel of a battleship to steady the whole carriage. Low-pressure tires on w!de, Safety- Ride rims, that stop hccl-ovcr and sway on curves. Firm, sure, quick-acting shock absorbers, promptly snubbing the after- bounce of the bigger bumps. Ihe important thing is what these all add up to. Freedom at last from jounce and jiggle. A level, floating, road-free passage over almost any kind of road, with even the worst of them as never before. Add Fireball power to all this—the roominess of wide, deep seats — the lightness of Buick controls and the liquid silkincss of Dynaflow Drive*—and you have a car just too good to miss. VjOmc try one, won't you? Yout Buick dealer will be delighted to demonstrate without obligation — delighted to show you that if you can afford a new car, you probably can afford a Duick *Slar:ttald on ROAnMAlltR, a a*4 SUPER mcdcli. al at IXlH fat t* e* F-263 SVFtf. bvbfefc" Icwttyrtlt • WI&f-ANGit VlSIBftJTT- domup ro *wtt> forwwrf onrf bock • r*AFFfC-HAHDY HZI, km cm-all fengtf. f porl/ng and yvtaging, ifiori turning rodrui » tXTftA-WI&f if ATS b«1w*«n ftrt ojln * SOiT ftLWOC RfDf, From aJJ-coil tprfging, rixit, fow.pfti»ur« Krer, with B<x*y ty fi »*>«f. 113 West Main Blytheville Phone 3421 LANGSTON-McWATERS BUICK CO.
