E3?) . The Power that made Buick Famous I F you want to know what's "the newest thing" in automobile engines, look at the Buick engine pictured here, and you'll see the words "valve-in- head." But it happens that this isn't new with Buick. As a matter of fact, the valve-in- head engine was invented back in 1902 -U. S. Patent No. 771095-and immediately, Buick adopted the principle, which became the first in a long string of "Buick firsts." Not everyone went for the idea—then. In spite of the fact that this engine "breathes" more freely—gets fuel iij and exhaust gases out more easily— others hung onto their pet ideas. Then came the airplane, with its need for maximum power from every drop of fuel—and every maker of internal combustion airplane engines adopted the valve-in-head principle. And more recently—with the hope that higher-octane fuels will become available for motor cars—a lot of automotive engine designers are taking a new look at the valve-in-head idea. Out just for the record, we'd like to point out that Buick got there first. And ever since, Buick has gone steadily ahead, building up a name as "valve-in- headquarters." Buick engineers reshaped pistons to put Fireball wallop in these engines. They stepped up com- pression ratios as fast as better fuels came along. So perhaps you'll want to remember, when you hear the term "valve-in- head," that this is the type of power that made Buick'jamous. If others want to climb on the bandwagon, we say "more power to them" —and no pun is intended. But Buick has been doing more with valve-in-head right from the start. And-we might add-it stands to reason that Buick is not through making this type of engine better and better.
