(And think of the big gas savings that means!) Next comes the Number Two discovery— out on the road. For here—still without switching the pitch—you have plenty more nimble* acceleration to surge, or spurt ahead, to climb hills, to do with almost Hlortless case all the things normally railed for by highway drivin".

This is performance too good to pass np-and you really ought to try it. It's performance sparked by the whispered might of big new 322-cubic-inch V8 engines raised to record highs in power and compression.
