Car owners in three different price classes—all happy about the same thing, One of them drives a new Buick SPECIAL, which you see poking forth its new, bold-look forefront at the left of our picture. Another will tell you there's nothing like the SUPER'S "happy medium" of size and comfort, power and easy handling, style and standing. And if you're looking for prestige, where is your money, going to buy so much as in that handsome 18-footer, the ROADMASTER, with its 150-hp performance and really royal bearing? But all these good folks get together on this: There's no ride quite so soft and cushiony as the Buick ride, whatever the size and series. There's no power quite so satisfyingly lively as Buick's high<ompression, high-pressure Fireball power. Above all, there's no "buy" like a Buick — no car that gives you such a rich dollar's worth of smartness, handling, comfort and liveliness for every dollar you pay. So why not look the whole line over? Your Buick dealer has these grand travel-mates in a baker's dozen of different body types and sizes.
