This is the same car which was used for demonstrating some time ago on Maui and with which the distance from Lahaina
to Wailuku was covered in 52 1-2 minutes after a heavy storm.
This is also the same car which carried five people (and could have carried two or three more) up lao Valley.
It is in order hero to make a slight correction on the report of that ride. Nearly all the passengers thought, and told others in good faith
that this was done on high gear. However truth compels usto state that in fact intermediate was used twice on two of the sharpest turns. The passengers
might easily have thought that the gears were not shifted as tho absolute quietness with which these gears change makes it impossible of detection.
We further absolutely guarantee that this car was and is a stock car throughout and we guarantee that any
car of this make which you might purchase of us will do exactly the same things with as great, if not greater, ease.
We now have on hand three of these wonderful cars and can make immediate delivery.
