The Car that Sells by the Train Load.
More than $2,000,000 worth of Buicks
have been shipped out of Flint by the train load in the past
Buick export shipments have been more;
tfian $1,000,000 in the past three months.
The famous Buick overhead valve motor is
guaranteed to have more power and more speed than anv
other type of motor on the market. It will pull stronger
on low grade gasoline than any other type of motor ever
built and tho fuel consumption is less.
With the cost steadily going- up, fuel consumption is an im
portant consideration. Read what this owner says:
"I have run my Buick 45,000 miles in three years; and it
has cost me only $17.70 for repairs. It has never been
laid up and is giving me as good service today as it did
the day I bought it. I get about 20 miles to every gallon
of gaioline. Buick spells economy and it doesn't take a
mechanic to run one." H. B. Oklahoma City, Ok.
