NOW M MS OLD TACOMA EIKM THK (IIJWST AM) lAWiKST MOTOR CAK AGENCY IX SOUTHWEST The auiomobile industry is now the second in the United States, yet in all Southwest Washington there is not a single automobile selling company that was in business so short a time ago as 15 years. That span covers the development of the automobile business in the United States from a puny baby to an enormous giant that continues to grow by leaps and bounds. I The oldest automobile company in I Southwest Washington is the Ameri can Automobile company of Tacoma. Incidentally, this company is also the largest in the same field, two facts that are # plainly allied. The American Automobile company began opera tions in 1905, and since then thou sands of cars of the best makes have been sold by it. At its inception the company de cided that it would handle only, the best cars in the various classes, and that it would make honesty and serv ice its watchword. After 14 years this policy is seen to have been the paying one, because the American Au tomobile company has sold cars of more value than any competitor in its field, and each year Its sales business is larger than that of any other house. The American Automobile company sells Franklin, Reo, Liberty and Max well automobiles; Mack, Reo, Max well and Service, trucks, and Cleve land tractors. • , Incidentally the success of the com pany is attributed by its officers large ly to thq fact that it believes in .in tensive advertising." It spends more money for printers' ink each year than any other automobile company In thO" Southwest territory and it plans to cover a more extensive territory than ever from now on.
