Vast crowds watched those low, spedaUy-built cars roar around that great track, lap after lap, with throttle wide open and marveled that cars could keep going so long at such furious speed. The race lasted 400 miles. The winning car averaged a fraction better than 94 miles an hour. That was fast traveling, to be sure, and real endurance Yet JUST contrast the showing made by those specially-designed, specially-built, prcM fessionally-driven racing cars with the speed and endurance records held by Chandler and Cleveland Sixes. A Chandler roadster with top and windshield removed ran 1000 miles around the speedway at Culver City, in 689 minutes an average of 86.9 mijes an hour. Think of it! Not 400 miles, but 1000 miles! Not a racing car a CKandlerJ Two and a half times the distance of the Indianapolis Race, and only a difference of about 8 miles an hour in average speed. " Another time at Culver City, a Cleveland Six maintained an average speed of better than 80 miles xan hour for 1000 miles covering the distance in 745 minutes the fastest 1000 miles ever run by an auto- o o o o mobile without once stopping the motor! These and many other equally import-ant records held by Chandler and Cleveland clearly reveal the remarkable power and stamina these Sixes possess and prove better than anything else the kind of quality built into these cars. Chandler and Cleveland both have high-pressure motor lubrication and what's more, both have the great "One Shot" System of centralized4 chassis lubrication. For sheer beauty, rare comfort, big value and championship performance, all together, the new Chandler and the new . Cleveland are simply, without rivals in their respective price classes. See these cars. Name your own tests Do your own testing. We'll leave everything to your own judgment. CHANDLER-CLEVELAND MOTORS CORPORATION f CBiPllR-CfLIHI "''. CLEVELAND, OHIO IDEAL MOTOR CAR CO.
