Figures—engine speed figures, horse-power figures, wheel-base figures—they meant nothing to him. The name "Maxwell" carried more weight than all the technical description that could be offered. Maxwell cars have achieved this great good will and this priceless position with the public only by their unequalled record of things done. What is said of an automobile in its specifications is one matter. What the car actually does in the hands of owners, year after year , is another matter. u \ The Maxwell car has won its position through sheer merit. It has set record after record in competition with cars of all prices and classes. Everything considered, the Maxwell is the safe investment. It is a known, tried and proved product.
