A Greater Paige for 1915
A better car not a cheaper car is offered in the Paige
"36" for 1915.
Just now prices are being slashed right and left in the
automobile field and there is red hot competition among
many manufacturers to bring their selling price down to the
very lowest point
The "Ten Associates," however, are not content to sacri
fice quality in order to present to the public alluring "bargain"
inducements. They prefer to offer more car value for the
money rattier than a skimped product at a decreased price.
Investigate the new Paige note the many added refine
mentsand then ask yourself whether you prefer to buy more
car for the money or less quality for a "price."
