Question of Color
For Painting Autos
Plnc the earliest days th question of
color haa been a problem for automobile
ma n uf act iiver.
Tha automobile aa a manufacturing In
dustry in this country Is now about ten
years old. paring that time automobile
have been painted every conceivable color
and tbeee colors have been put In every
conceivable oombinaUoo. In the early days
cara wera painted entirely black, but as
time went by this was rather too sobr
for tha public generally and therefore,
numerous rotors w re tv-P'oyed.
About 1903 a great many cars were
produced painted entirely red. Tills
proved to be rather too "notsy" for the
majority of buyers and then blue, yellow,
gray, brown and numerous other colors
were tried, all of which have been found
less durable than red or black. Today
the public generally has come to consider
an automoblla as in Us natural garb when
It has at least a portion of Its surface
covered with red The public haa ceased
to consider red a "loud" color on an
automobile. Red and black are vastly
superior to any ether color which could
be used, not only in tha satisfaction given
to the owner after the rar ha bei-n pur
chased, but they are also much easier
colors to handle lu the paint (-hop and
first class jobs can be turned out and
with less thbor expen;). although red
as a color cost more than any other.

Modern Auto Parts
Made to Conform to
In tha early days of the motor car In
dustry many factories were merely a
rembling plants. Motors, axles, trans
missions, bodies, topa. windshields, wheels
and almost every other parts of the cars
were purchased from part makers and
merely put together by the company
which gave Its name to the finished car.
The great contrast between the car of
that day and the 1913 Peerless, for ex
ample. Is due largely to the fact that al
though the parts In themselves In many
cases were excellent they had the serious
weakness of having been designed aa sep
arate parts without reference to the unity
of tha car In which they were finally
to be used.
In the highest type of modern car every
