THE Chalmers "30" is the only
medium priced car that was
ever awarded the Glidden Trophy
Of 11 the Glidden Toun, that of 1910 ws lti
longest, and bjr far the harden, .'l lasted for lixtetn
running dajri and cohered 2,831 miles. It sured at
Cincinnati and went " by way of Dallas, Texai,"
through thlttcen Statci to Chicago.
Wordt and pictures cannot matce plain the racking
cobblestone loads of Kentucky the stump-studded
forest trails of the Tennessee mountains the swamps
of Arkansas the deep, treacherous sands of Texas
the mud of Kansas the brldgtleis southern streams or
the sheltering heat that punished cars and men alike.
It Is the opinion of experts nho made thli tour
that no car in the norld could have completed It with a
perfect score. Yet, from Cincinnati to Louisville to
Nathvllle-to Sheffield, Ala. to Memphis to Little
Kock to Hot Springs to Texatkana to Dallas to
Lawton, Oklahoma to Oklahoma City to Wichita,
Kansas eleven consecutive days out of the sixteen,
through the hardest part of the trip and for five
days after every other car on the tour had been
penalized, not a single point could be assessed against
the Chalmers "30" the $1500 car $1600 with mag.
neto, I'rest-O.LIte tank and gas lamps. ,
In all the history of motoring, there Is no per
formance like this. The Glidden Trophy has never
been won before by a car costing less than $1000.
If you are thinking of buying a car, what better
proof could you alk of reliable performance under all
of the winning Chalmers "30" r
The Chalmers "30" has never been defeated
In any Important motoring event by any car of
tu price and power class. The Chalmers "Forty"
won the Detroit Trophy In the 1909 Glidden Tour.
Chalmera cars have won more events of all kinds in
proportion to the number entered than other cars.
In addition to perfect mechanical performance,
you get In the Chafmtri all the beauty of Ho lai
finish that you can find in any car.
What more could you ask In any car at any price
than you get in the medium-priced Chalmers
We have never had so large a volume of business
as we have now. There has never been so satisfying a
demand for Chalmers cars' as there has been since we
announced out 1911 models, yet this demand will
not affect the Chalmera policy of building cars for
quality, not quantity.
We suggest, therefore, that you place your otdr
now, so as to be sure of getting the car that Is' your
first choice, Chalmers cars are the first choice
of those who look most carefully Into the automo
bile question and know the most about automobile
1911 cars are nnw on exhibition. Deliveries an
