You try a Chesterfield and find them COOL and PLEASANT. You light one after another and find they really TASTE BETTER. You buy pack after pack and find that Chesterfields are MILDER. You can't buy a better cigarette T HE way cars have been stretching out lately, it usually takes only u couple o[ cars to occupy the curb space of an extension-ladder fire truck. Not so with the newest additions to the 1941 Buick line. Merc we've reversed the trend—just to prove that an honcst-to-golly BIG car can be built without going overboard on bumper-to-bumper distance. The four new models now adorning the Buick SPECIAL Series fit neatly into modest garages without putting n permanent crimp in the doors. They slip into parking places smoothly as a rowbout nestles up to a ^^KTJffi dock—and the way they ftit through traffic is a delight to wheel-weary drivers. When it comes to tic/ion —well, they've got a H5-hp. FIREBALL eight under their bonnets that skims you down'the road like a mallard heading home. You can add Compound Gar- buretion at small extra cost and have 125 horsepower that does tilings we hardly dare hint about in print. But they're a handy six inches short- cr, bumper to bumper, than other Biucks—a quartet of top-quality cars in a new and easily-handled size. The price? It's lower too.
