FOUR-WHEEL DEBUTANTES HAVE 1OOMING OUTT NEW YORK: The 1939 version of the greatest annual U. S. fashion parade was presented last week with the opening of The National Automobile Show in Manhattan's Grand. Central Palace, and the nation's No. 1 industry was again bursting with Its usual show-time optimism. By September 30, close of the automobile year, profits had declined as much as 70%, employment had been cut one-third, total production «f 2,704,992 units was little more than half 1937*8. But even this fignre was nearly twice as high as 1932's Depression low. And by the season's end the glutted used-car market was back to normal with 'only 90,000 new cars remaining unsold, an almost unprecedented cteanout of the nation's 45,000 showrooms. With the slate thus wiped clean, with the new cars full of genuine mechanical Improvements and priced below 1938 <thoogh still above 1937), and with the public snapping up the advance models and ordering more, Detroit was sure Its 1939 fashions would 'click. Most significant advance 'this year is the virtual disappearance of the familiar wobble-stick, gearshift lever; almost all 1939 cars will sport some sort df steering post-mounted gearshift -"either as standard or extra equipment While most of these systems 'are merely conveniently placed substitutes for the old wobble-sHcta, some, use the vacuum energy generated by the engine's air-Intake systems to operate automatic clutching and transmission changing. Other changes: Running boards are abandoned completely In some models, optional In others. The rumble has given way to the 4-to- 6 seat coupe. General savings in gas consumption and wear and tear are promised from the 'over-drive, an automatic super-high gear that engages somewhere between 23 and 35 m. p. m., cutting the motor speed down almost to that of the drive shaft Not the same as free-wheeling, the over-drive provides free- rolling efficiency-while still retaining the braking power of the engine, Is conceeded -wider favor than free-wheeling since 'It requires • no manual operation. Other new wrinkles'include rotary door latch that catch without -Slam mlnjr; increased -visibility through blggerwind shield area; sliding sunshine panels 1n sedan'tops; "catwalk cooling" grilles lowset on the-cftt- walk apron between hood and fenders to scoop up the theoretically coler ah- near the 'ground. Adopted by no manufacturer but approved by the U. S. Patent -Office Is an extra-special-gadget invented by David O. 'Wilson >of Santa Monica, Calif. At the touch of a'button on the dash, this rear-end device waggles a derisive tongue and gives a Bronx cheer to the horn-tooter behind. In 1938 Bales, as in 1B36 and 1837 Chevrolet led the padk, hotly-press ed by Ford, with Plymouth third But stable for stable, the Ford and Lincoln-Zephyr combination ran third, the Chrysler line (Plymouth De Soto, Dodge and Chrysler) sec ond and General Motors (Chevrolet Pontiac, Buick, Oldsmtfbile, LaSalk and Cadillac) far out in front. Fo 1939, Henry Ford has two major bidi for a return to the day When flTv vers led the field: a new car—the Mercury—to tap the mlddle-pric field; installation, at last, of by draulic brakes hi all models. 'Only other newcomer in the field 'is an oldtlmer, the Overland, which re appears as big brother to the littl Willys. » «-» PHILADELPHIA: For every cus tomer who buys a new car this year two will buy used cars. For th guidance of these a voice of exper ience from Philadelphia, that of 40 year-old Dealer Martin H. Bury, las week expounded the subject of use car buying in a 44-page, 25c bookie published by his firm, Bury Si Hoi man, Inc. With the reminder that "there ar no bargains in used cars", only sav ings because of consumed mileage Preceptor Bury advises used ca buyers to buy from a reputable deal er with service facilities; buy in th winter—prices are lower and goo winter cars are usually better sum emr cars; buy standard makes. A few of Mr. Bury^ warnings: Be ware of worn upholstery—the in nards may be worse; don't beltev speedometer mileage, look at th pedal wear; a new paint job some times covers a multitude of sins. In the course of his research Dealer Bury made a used-car TexJ con. Samples: Jalopy (junky use cars); Baloney (tires worn smooth) Jaloney (a palopy sold with balo uey>; Hop toad (prospect who vis its all dealers, inspects, tries car out, but never buys); Orphan (a ca no longer manufactured); Tomat (stolen c*r), Four Algona young people had stolen away from home and friends boarded the Milwaukee train for Mason City where they were quietly married.
