Business prospects, both local and national, are decidedly on the mend, in the opinion of Sam Rozeit of the S. and R. Chevrolet company Inc., lonal Chevrolet dealers, who has just returned from Detroit where he and other dealers from this section "pro-viewed" the new 1934 Chevrolet, soon to be announced. Mr. Rozen, who with W. M. Meek, spent a day at the General Motors proving: ground. There W. E. Holler, general aaleamatinger of Chevrolet, presented the new line of cars, outlined plans and policies for the coming year, and gave every dealer present an opportunity not only to inspoct each model but also to put it through its paces on the rugged hills, rough roads, find 4';. mile speed track which the provuv ground provides. "With cars like those new Chev- rolcts to sell, I'm enthusiastic about business prospects for next year," said Mr. Rozen. "I went up there expecting a lot, for of course General Motors' 'knee-action' front wheels had already been announced, with the promise that they would revolutionize the experience o£ riding and driving. "I found this literally true. They told us to 'give her the works,' to put the car, at 50 and 60, over bumps and ruts we'd ordinarily taki! in second g-eor--or better yet, avoid altogether. The absence of Jolts, jars or shocks is simply heyond description: it must be experienced to be believed. Yet 'knee-action' is only one of a dozen major features embodied in the new Chevrolet. "Every dealer I talked to is anxiously awaiting the public announcement of the new cars. Everyone feels as certain us I do that they'll put a real, active stimulus behind local business--and when that sort of thing takes place all over the country, good times will really bo on the way!"
