Somedny, he's told himself, I'm going to turn in my old car and get a new one. And he said, still talking to himself, when I do that I'm going to size up the field —give 'em all a real going over. %u see him here at the wheel of a Buick. He hasn't bought it-yet. It's a demonstrator, and he's trying it out. But the more he tries it, the more he knows he's been wasting a lot of time. Prom the moment he looked inside, he said: Here's the room —and the comfort-nnd the style I've been looking for. Then he nudged its' Fireball Engine into action. It's a high-compression valve-in-head, asyou probably know. He eased out into traffic. Stopped and started for a couple of traffic lights, and said something to the effect that this Dynaflow Drive* is a honey. Why don't they all build 'cm this way? He saw a bump ahead.

It's hard to believe, he said, but what they say about Buick's ride' is right. Ten minutes later he was out on an open stretch of road. Tried an experimental push on the gas treadle. Boy—what a take-off! "You couldn't want more power than that. Ten minutes more —and he knew something else. You don't really steer a Buick. It just about steers itself. Stays right on the beam on the straightaway. Even straightens itself out after a curve. lo make a long story short —he's found out that nothing else he's tried out can hold a candle —not even a little Christmas candle —to this bonnie beauty. Back at the Buick showroom, he's going to get one more surprise. The price of a Buick is a lot less than he'd guessed it would be. Moral: Smart Buy's Buick —right now. n».
