RIT 2i M AN MOTOR CAR
Two years ago, Mr. W. E. Foshier, president of the Oartercar Nebraska Company, first offered tho buyers of
this territory the Cartercar. He offered it as a meritorius automobile, oqual in quality and superior in me
chanical design to any other car of equal price. He placed upon it a guarantee so liberal that to question
its quality was to doubt his word. Since then, hundreds actually hundreds of buyers in this section have
taken him at his word and purchased Cartercars. Month by month, his business has increased until it is
now one of the largest, most liberally patronized automobilo distributing houses in Middle America.
Credit for this stupendous growth is due both man and motor car. No buyer ever found Mr. Foshier other
than, willing to put the service of his entire organization behind the Cartercar in fully carrying out his gen
erous guarantee. No buyer over found through test any feature or point in construction in tho Cartercar
that failed in any wise to come up fully to the claims of the Nebraska Cartercar Company.
A clean business house selling a highly meritorious automobile! No wonder his business has grown more
rapidly than that of any automobile concern in this territory, until he now occupies the largest premises of
any exclusive automobile house in the Middle West. No wonder Cartercar owners, to a man, several hun
dred of them stand squarely on the statement that the Cartercar is the automobile you should buy. They
just can't help working for the Oartercar. Thoy are being treated right and are enjoying motor car ser
vice and pleasures of an unusual nature, free from the troubles over which their neighbors are worrying.
Ask one of these fellows. No matter where you locate him, you will find him the most enthusiastic
"booster" you ever met. He is not marked with the wrinkles of tho motor car "trouble chaser." Ho
smiles as he rides, dreams pleasantly as he sleeps, and takes his money to the bank not to the village
i ' i-i rahkn Co.
Uts YOl too, tho
Its f-uperior service
The Cartetcar is Wonderfully Well Made
It is right from rrdiator to tail lamp. Imported and double row, high efficiency ball bearings are used o
xtensively. The motor runs as quietly as an Electric. The car rides as comfortable as a Pullman. Tho
equipment, including electric lights and electric motor starter, is of the best.
Is the Best of them All
Cartercar Friction Transmission,
Just a specially constructed disk, which is fully guaranteed
until the car goes to the scrap heap, driving a fiber filled
wheel, which costs less to maintain than to keep grease in
the old transmission. And, my! how much power it has.
You can actually climb a b0r grade with it. A comparison
of the Cartercar transmission with the sliding gear trans
mission, at the right, makes argument unnecessary. The
Oartercar Friction Transmission is so much more economi
cal, so much easier to handle and so much more trustworthy.
After owning this, you would never want a car with
gears in it.
