Most car owners parhaps do not know that "out of focus" headlamps can mean that your road vision, at night, is lessened by as much as 40 per cent. And with sealed beam headlamps, as most cars have, the average owner DOES NOT KNOW if his front headlamps are in proper adjustment At our Viking Oil station, we have installed LEV-L.LITE equipment for making this headlamp adjustment. It is expertly done by our attendant — WHILE YOU WAIT. Lev- L-Lite puts your headlamp beams "right on" — no guesswork about it. Furthermore, LEV-L-LITE adjustment is endorsed by all national makers of sealed beam headlamps — no matter what make of car you drive. Stop in at our station first chance you get — and ask us to make you a LEV-L-LITE headlamp adjustment. Takes but a fraction of your time — and you drive away with headlamps perfectly adjusted for darkness hour driving. VIKING Oil CO. honor of the eightieth birthday of William Knopf, father of Paul.
