The HOT SPOT Chalmers is the One Car of the Day f II ^ [1 E great American public, never tooled for long, | is beginning to realize that Chalmers is one of the joL few great cars of the world. Sales are climbing fast. From coast to coast the move ment is toward Chalmers. Todav this car is on a production basis at the factory that Chalmers executives little expected to occur even in July. Why is this? "['he answer is "Hot Spot." I'or this simple but really magnificent device does a trick in the use of gas that is almost beyond belief. It"smashes up" raw gas,"pulverizes" it, makes it "fine as dust," so that you can get every last bit of power out of gas. Then the great Ram's-horn rushes it gently but quickly through "easy air berids" to the cylinders, and what is the result? Not only high power from a low grade gas, but an even, soft flow of power that rests your nerves, saves your tires, and gives you a new and rare delight in driving.
