There's the might of its Fireball 8 Engine most powerful ever put in a Buick. There's the thrift of its Airpowcr carburetor --a four-barrel automatic that literally brings increased power right r,ut of thin air. There's its hushed and luxurious silence -- its poised and level ride that cost a million dollars to develop--and the infinite smoothness of its Dynaflow Drive. U ut the thing that has brought the most cheers for this big and obedient beauty is Buick's version of Power Steering.* Gone is the tug of turning, parking, maneuver, ing in small space. Power Steering takes over the effort of turning the front wheels-makes it a one-hand operation. JDo you have to learn to drive all over again if you have this new Buick feature?

On the open road, you have that same sure sense of command that you've always had. Coming out of a curve, you can loosen your grip, and the front wheels right themselves just as they do on every Bu ick. But you'll notice this: When you suddenly hit loose dirt or sand-or a stretch of rough road- Power Steering smoothly goes into action helps take up the jerk - makes control of the wheel easier and driving safer.
