Balgeman, Clerk J.ODAY, we are presenting, for your consideration, the finest, most beautiful motor cars we have ever been privileged to announce. They are the new Cadillacs for 1950—and we want you to come and 1 see them. \Ve not only Kant you to see them—but we think you should see them. For to see and inspect these wonderful creations will make you a sharper judge of all cars—and increase your motor-car wisdom in every respect. There are four entirely new series of cars- all with wholly new bodies, and all completely restyled. \Ve think you'll agree that nothing so sleek and dynamic and beautiful has ever been seen on the world's streets and highways. They are arresting!)- and brcath-takingly gorgeous— 'and all are tilstinctkcly Cadillac. And not only are they advanced in beauty— but their performance is finer in every way. Cadillac's great new high-compression engine is even smoother; it is actually quicker in acceleration; and it runs so quietly that only the indicators reveal when it is in action. It is simply wonderful to drive. And—difficult as this will be for owners of 1949 Cadillacs to believe—the 1950 cars are even more economical to ajuriite. Gasoline mileage really approaches that of the smaller, lowest- priced cars. It is no less than amaxing that cars so big and luxurious should run so far on a gallon of gasoline. Comfort and handling ease are also remarkably advanced. There is far finer ro.ul balance and over-all steadiness at all drmnti speeds. Steering is softer and more positive. Brakes are more efficient and longer-lived. The over-all satisfaction of driving—from every standpoint — is simply "out of this world." Truly, here are ears so tine and beautiful that they deserve your personal consideration. Make your plans now to conic in and see them. You will be cordially welcome at any time.
