Repeatedly, In various parts of the country, stock models of the Cadillac Eight have set fast road records, racing against time and against railroad trains, over dan gerous mountain roads and level plains. One of the early achieve ments was last June, when one of these cars was driven from Los Angeles to San Francisco in com petition with the Southern Paci fic's fastest train between the two cities, known as the Lark. Most of the Cadillac's trip of 492 miles was made in the dark, at an aver age speed of better than forty miles per hour over dangerous mountain roads. The train was beaten by a magin of one hour and J5 minutes. Soon afterwairi came word of the car's feat in beating by Erf most two hours the time over the 125 miles from Butte to Missoula, Mont., in the Yellowstone Trail re lay run. This distance was made in three hours and 52 minutes, at an average speed of 32.3 miles an hour, as acainst the best previous motor car record of 5 hours, 4*) minutes. In quick succession followed the face from jJenver to Cheyenne be tween a Vnion Pacific special train and a Cadillac Eight, the train traveling 112 miles to the Cadillac's 116 miles. Neverthe less the car arrived two minutes before the train, having averaged about 5ft ir.ilcs an hour to make the Tun in 2 hours. 15 minutes. Next. Inrliana came in with the usual res :lt—fast train lx?aten by a Cadillac Bight. This was be tween Indianapolis and Terre Haute, the car making the 72 miles in 77 minutes, against 91 minutes for the train. Ajiother California achievement of recent date was the Los An ?eles-Bakersfield round trip in 5 hours. 4 minutes for the 26t miles, breaking the recdrd of a twelve-cylinder car over the same route by one hour and 24 minutes. hear the great virtuoso on the Victrola it is as though you were hearing him in real life. ii-i- His profoundly beautiful playing, his exquisite phrasing, his brilliant technique, all entrance you—you realize that here is a master artist. Opposed to all these records ot high speed, and emphasizing the ability of the car. is the slow speed, high gear test of a Cadillac Eight in Seattle, Wash. There the car averaged l.SG miles per hour for 1,211 feet, requiring 8 minute* 8 3-5 seconds to cover the dis tance. The car carried live pas sengers, and the driver left his seat and walked tackward ahead of it for an entire hlock. The proof is in the hearing.
