"Hellpi prevent accidents tc your own vehicle and others, reduce the congestion caused by traffic tieups when vehicles cannot move on slippery surfaces, toy having your car or truck checked now for essential equipment and : to ensure proper conditions to meet the special demands of winter travel" The bulletin urges car owners to have brakes checked to make sure they are equalized and functioning; headlights examined and old units replaced; windshield wipers tested; exhaust systems carefully inspected for defects to guard against defects permitting gases to escape into the truck cab or car interior; electrical system checked for proper insulation and tight connections to griard against moisture causing short circuits; and a thorough Checkup of tires.

When better automobiles are built mill build them '."','•»; ,'/:?•< They're all there, every one of those things. And for a good reason that may go a bit beyond the usual idea in designing an automobile. For, a long while ago, we graduated from the idea that a motorcar is merely a means of getting about. The way you travel is pretty important too. The lift that's yours in knowing there's no prettier picture anywhere on the highways. The "kick" there is in a power plant that's lively and eager and always ready to get in on the fun. The comfort that's found in all-coil springs, a husky, steady-traveling understructure, cushions that are deep and soft and wide enough to let you spread yourself a bit. Even that extra swelling of the chest that conies from owning a car you know everyone respects and admires. In a word—your happiness. It's never out of our mind in planning this car—nor.in making very sure each dollar of cost gives you the greatest possible benefit. That's why we rather proudly ask you to go see—and try—this Buick SPECIAL. It's priced like a six, in spite of the fact that like all Buicks, it's a big-powered Fireball valve- in-head straight-eight. And we honestly believe that it puts a lower price tag on your motoring happiness than any other car you can buy today! See your Buick dealer and find out about that.
