J. HANKS Your JfcfTCfcr Y ES sir, there's a championship caliber all through that Buick of yours. It's caliber that calls for mighty little "conditioning"—if the attention it gets adds up to really knowing and understanding care. For instance, these Fireball cylinders will keep on packing all the wallop they should, if you let us compression-check them in the Buick way. Steering will stay easy and light, tire wear will stay at the minimum, if you keep your wheels lined up on our special tracking gauges. Skilled service men — Buick to their finger tips — know how to bring out all the Fireball zip and go. And when wVar does take its inescapable toll, we have the parts — Buick-engineered for their job — othat restore factory-new standards of performance. Even our tools are specially designed to do a typical Buick job — and for the personal, interested, specialized attention that tops off genuine Buick care, you simply can't beat the Buick specialists in our shop. Yes, give your champ real Buick care — Buick know-how, Buick parts, Buick interest in keeping your car at its peak. Costs no more than ordinary attentions — but what a whale of a difference it makes! lubrici b *i i i or : ,,,p,eifl,d ' e '^»«>«'. wJZ > Who ••«»'the oMu ; e : i8(h *"''""""'•-»•«.'..-mount lubri,o„„ tor , fl)I|y ehojen a,0n: ' h ^-"'>.»'.r y ou,B„!ck Matched, to-mileage maintenance for Buicks »"o,ou 9 h l„. p . e , i0B( „ I"'*""* ""do record!, ""•"'vice for future r.f.r.„„. * J " rOM 'war DMI « iv«r 1000 M,US FOR LUBRICARE • tubri^r. odd, thoughtful e „ f . , 0 •mooth performance, y our Buick de. ••rv.l lubricore re 8 „| 0r ,y.
