That is the amaaing record reveal-
v cd by the statistics just compiled
- from the experiences of 75 Cadillac
"Thirty" owners in New York City
i acd vicinity.
It is doubtful if the entire history
of travel and transportation steam,
,- electric or jjasoline can show a case
of parallel economy. .
L V There was in this instance no spe
cial striving to attain a minimum.
The 75 owners went their separate

They took no special precautions,
but drove where they pleased, whenv
thev pleased, how they pleased;
, without the slightest idea that, their
erperiencc was to be made a matter
At the close of 1909 statistics were'
collected and comniled from the
signed statements of the 75 users.
It was found that, the 75 cars had
. traveled a total distance of 398,884
miles, or a distance equivalent to
16 trips around the .world.,
,nn Forty-six of the owners had no
" repair cost whatever not a single
Ipenny in Unite of the fact that
some of them had driven their, cars
as much as 18,000' miles.
The Highest ' individual repair
-charge for the entire year was that
of one user,, whose car .cost him
' for special reasons which did not
reflect upon the construction in anv
way 10, the distance it carried
being 9,000 miles.
Eleven of the' others expended
during the year from 25 cents to 50
cents. The average distance travel
ed was 5,318 miles per car, yet. the
average repair, expense was less than
71 cents per car. . ,

cents, per car
users showed further that the aver
age gasoline Consumption for the
touring scan was one gallon for each
15 miles of travel and one quart of
oil for each 175 miles of travel. The
Scmi-Tonneau cars showed an aver
age of 17 miles for each gallon
of gasoline and 200 miles for each
quart of oil. Some users obtained
20 or more; miles for each gallon of
gasoline, but the figures first given
are averages. .
There is no disguising the fact
that this record has proved a revel
ation, even, to automobile manufac
turers themselves, ,
It proves beyond a doubt what,'
the Cadillac Company has always
maintained, , that the elements in
motor car construction which are
absolutely necessary to economy and
immunity from repairs are scientific
design, standardization, accuracy of
.workmanship and correct alignment,
Also that necessity for repairs is the
result' of poor design, inaccuracy off
workmanship, fllfittintr, and incor-.
rectly aligned parts,
A year or more' a"o they proved
before the E'oyal Automobile Club of
London, that three Cadillacs could
be torn down; all the parts thrown
in a pile: a portion of these; parts ,
discarded and new ones substituted,
and the three cars built up again
from the heap of -parts to run with
absolute sweetness and without so
much as an iota of looseness.
For this the Cadillac was award-'
ed the Dewar Trophy, s
'And now1 comes another demon
stration which' simply emphasizes the
fact, that the convictions of the. Ca
dillac i Company as to" the essentials
of a long-lived, serviceable and (eco
nomical car i are correct,
Cadillao measurements are finer
in' a greater proportion of essential
parts, than those f any other car in
the world finer than the costliest
cars made, i. ;
