Sheldon's "IN HIS STEPS" with Eric Linden Cecelia Parker Companion Feature Walter Abel In 'TWO IN THE DARK* ON DISMAY at all Buick Shotvmomt S ENSATIONAL is the fervor with which the American public has taken to its heart the brilliant motor cars offered by Buick this year. Indeed, the sweeping success of the 1936 Buick program flatly challenged us and our great parent General Motors to a momentous decision. Should we continue this amazingly popular line of cars into next year, perhaps the prudent thing to do — or should we dare broad improvement upon their spectacular excellence? We felt there was only one right answer to that question, the bold and progressive answer—and that's why insiders now forecasting 1937 are already saying: "It's Buick again!". That's why on top of $15,000,000 recently spent re-tooling and reequipping Buick's great plant, we appropriated and are now spending $14,500,000 more. - That's why every car in the 1937 Buick line—the SPECIAL, the CENTURY, the ROADMASTER and the LIMITED—ia a triumph visibly and intrinsically outrank' ing anything we have ever font. Each has more beauty for dazzling style, more power for breath-taking action, more room for fuH*family comfort, more downright "road-command" for safety and pleasure. . / See them—then you'll know why Buick's soaring sales curve is headed for yet loftier altitudes next year.
