Contractors Doubling the Capacity of Our Garage
We ask our patrons to bear with us until the contractors complete the remodeling and enlarging of
our salesroom and garage. For some time we have been unable to properly take care of our steadily in
creasing Ford business. So we decided to double our capacity. The contractors are now in charge and
we ask our patrons to bear with us for a few weeks and then we can give them better service than at aw
time in the past. J
Better get on the list for a Ford car or truck however. First come, first served. Better place your
order with us at ONCE. . ^ J
