They're too good-looking-too much fun to drive—too jam-packed with stcppcd-up, higher-compression, ready-to-ramble power-to be kept under clover. tjo maybe you've already seen some 1950 Buicks on the highway. Maybe you've noticed the extra "git up and travel" they have-glimpsed the wide, curving windshields (one piece hi most models)—noted, approvingly, that the typical Buick taper is now found in all Buick fenders. M.; tybe you've even heard some things. That there are more than a dozen-and-a- half models to choose from. That there are three power plants in the Buick lute —all of higher compression, all stepped up in power. That all models are big and roomy inside —some rear seats are better than a foot wider than before!—yet in every instance, shorter over-all, so easier to handle, park and garage. Above all, maybe you've heard of exciting news on price... That Dynaflow Drive, for instance- standard on ROADMASTER models,* optional on all bthcrs-now costs 20% less than on 1949 models.
