Watch him briefly in the stream of traffic—and, if he is 3. normal Cadillac driver, you will quickly sense what we mean. He drives as befits his mood and his requirements, and is quite content to let other people do the same. Unless he happens to be in a hurry, it is all right widi him if another driver wants the honors when the light turns green. He knows that the surplus power in that eager, dynamic engine'was put there for his safety and driving ease—and not for dramatic display on the get-away. And so on the open road. If you wish to drive a little faster than he does, let him know. *i o Passes Jfirn!
