A good part of the time, they're running errands, taking children to school, taking women to stores, taking men to work, taking family and friends to clubs and social functions. It doesn't call for a very great output of horsepower for duties like these. But there are times when you want a car that can do vastly more, and these are the times when you'll want what this year's ROADMASTER has to offer. Beneath its proud hood, there's a Fireball 8 Engine —a valve-in- hegd that can Jet loose 170 lively horsepower when needed. And —alongside this engine — there's also an Airpowcr carburetor which thriftily feeds fuel and air through two smailcr-than- usual barrels for normal driving — which means that you now use Jess gas at 40 than you'd formerly use at 30. But there are two barrels in reserve — waiting for you to cull them into action—and they let loose a soaring rush of power that sinks your shoulders back into the seat cushion, swoops you past a truck—out of a tight spot—up a hill -sets your speedometer needle to registering added miles more than twice as fast as your watch can tick oil the seconds.
