Grand Prize Race a Thriller

Of all tha norve-tlngllng, tplne-rhllllng
heart-breaking races I aver witnessed the
Grand Trite speed battle from start to
finish proved the most thrilling. Never
waa tuch a long distance event run.
There may htve been morr.tnta during
a short finish of tome great horse race,
bicycle contest or an automobile event
that gave the spectators as great a thrill
for a few seconds, but here was a great
race which for more than five hours
held IA0AO persons spellbound and there
wae never, a time up to the moment
Bruce-Brown flashed across the line at
the finish that It waa posslbel to pick
three men between whom the race lay.
It waa a distinct triumph for Amer
ican drivers. Of course, there were but
two great foreign pilots to oppose our
home boys, but there waa never a second
that showed either Wagner or llrmmery
aa tha iial of llearne, Kruce-Krown,
Da Palma, Bragg or Mulfoid. llrarne
waa tha surprise ut the iuue. Mlendcr at
a grammar school boy, llearne sat at the
wheel of a big car and mastered the
monster at 'av.-ry corner of the course,
displaying a skill and reckless abandon
that no foreign pilot ever showed. In

Too much cannot be Mid in praise of
Bruce-Brown. There wero other drivers
In tha race who drove Just as game and

won, and that la tho answtr. praise
must always go to tin- one fortune smiles
on and fortune certainly navu Brown a
good hearty grin during tho la.it lap.
Mulford's lll-f inuno alone prevented the
Vanderbllt cup winner from finishing as

- No one feature stands out more prominently
than another there's no . single device to catch the eye.
There is every last detail of construction, finish and equip
ment in and on the "Saybrook" Touring Car to make it
complete! It is head and shoulders above all other cars it
has no "experiments" to be tried by the buyer.
Every detail on it zve have tested and proven to be
worthy before it'finds a place on the "Saybrook." The sat
isfaction any car can give depends on the whole car,znd on

Here are some of its features, which go to make it
such a successful car; all of them as conducive in the high

These for comfort
Bodies not touching the dash This
sweeping improvement eliminates the sounding
board effect of the one-piece body; it prevents
the irritating squeaks due to road twists; it re
tines the entire car into silence. Strains on body
cannot bind the steering post.
Bodies do not touch the frame Be
tween the frame and body are placed rubber lugs.
These cushions do away with the usual vibration
ordinarily transmitted to the body from the run
ning gear of the car. K
Second speed transmission, has spiral
gear The ratchetty buzz of the second speed
is thus soft-pedaled into an inaudible, smooth
New type radius ,rods A universal joint,
cross and yoke type (covered with leather boots
to keep the dust out and the grease in), allow
ing for up-and-down and side motion. Result :
no wear nor rattle, and a much-easier-than-ordi-narily
Adjustable e ront seats Movable for
ward or back, to suit convenience of the driver.
WheelbasE Of 122 inches. Exhaustive
tests proved this the most advantageous wheel
base for a comfortable 7-passenger car.
. Hartford shock absorbers Makes sure
the riding comfort of the already perfect car.
Springs arb V inches wide Permitting
the use of fewer leaves and while making a far
easier-running car, also makes for more strength.
Electric furnace steel in these.
These for long service
Valve-in-head Motor With four cylin
ders, 4 x 5.
Multiple Vacuum Exhaust Pipe The same
principle is utilized as in steam engines. It means a
difference of 20 more power over other motors
having same size cylinders.
Easy starting device A priming arrangement
that forces gasolene directly into cylinder ports.
WATER COOLING A gear-driven pump keeps the
water moving. Radiator has spreading manifolds.
Casing separate from the core, son hat strains on frame
don't damage radiator.
Positive lubrication A gear-driven pump forces
oil directly to each crankshaft and cam shaft bearing.
This means more oil when you want it and less when
you need less., No ifs and ands about it.
Great braking surface No car in America
at anywhere near its weight has the brakes acting on
such a great spread of braking area. These new
brakes are of an improved and novel design, absolute
ly rattle-proof and thoroughly efficient. Spring
operated releases. Brakes can't drag.
Improved type rear system Full-floating
rear axle. It is larger than formerly and carries,
in this 1912 model, improvements that make it
These prove wise investment
Demountable rims Quick detachable,
demountable. Tires 36x4t. An extra rim is
furnished. Also tire irons.
Combination electric and oil lamps
Makes kerosene an optional reserve, and not
Windshield Of latest improved pat-
tern is part of this equipment.
Top and cover Full mohair top and
top boot are furnished to harmonize with
the car. . Storm curtains are also regular
equipment.. Foot-rest, foot-throttle, and
robe-rail are included.
