Tliere you'd see eight busy cylinders, with pistons Hushing up and down . . . You'd see each fuel churge packed tight into a tiny bundle shaped like u flattened ball . . You'd see the spurk leap, (he Hume spread, the piston thrust down with extra force MS ench furious fireball lets go its pent-up wallop. You'd sec all this happening as fast as thirty times a second in each of those eigh t cylinders—tuid we think you'd understand then just why there's such a special and exciting satisfaction in the way a Bnick travels. Gasoline gives up more of its power when it's packed as tightly as it is here. That special, fiat- lencd-ball shape of the compressed fuel charge means smoother, better burning, full focus of the power on the piston head, where it counts. So when you've got these eight balls of fire working busily under the bonnet, you really travel! You travel farther on every gallon and you travel more pleasurably. You travel—but, shucks!
