A business talk with a business man
on an interesting subject.
Right now you're considering the cost

The car you want is a car for service

ily and your friends can enjoy with you
a fine looking car that will always bring
you home, as well as take you away.
Your problem is to get the car that
fulfills these conditions, and fulfills
them at the least expense.
The E.M-F "30" is one of the cars that
you have considered. It is this car which
we are making the subject of this talk.
The first cost of the E-M-F "30" is
S1,000. There isn't any car of it's class
on the market—and we'll include all the
experiments and promises as yet unful
filled by competing firms—that can be
bought at anything like this figure.
The first cost argument is the one that
has thrown the world of motordom into
an uproar since October, 1910.
Others can't meet it. They couldn't
meet the E-M-F "30'' at $1,250. At $1,000

going to be obscured in the least, though
by the statement of any distracted rival.
We're going to review a little of it right
The E-M-F "30" at $1,000 is the biggest
manufacturing achievement of the age.
It has been made possible by the gigan
tic brain of the world's greatest builder
of motor cars—Walter E. Flanders.
More than $7,000,000 expended under
Mr. Flanders' own direction, over a per
iod of more than two years, is the one
possible factor to permit production of
such a car at such a price.
The vast difference in equipment for
manufacturing its car is what distin
guishes the E-M-F Company from all
others in its class. The E-M-F Company
makes its own motors, its own forgings,
its own castings, its own carburetors, its
own stampings—in short, its own car.
The enormous saving which the E-M-F
Company makes in? the production cost
of its car is readily apparent to any bus
iness man.-
Parts makers are becoming millionaires
attbe expense of the purchasers o£ the
cars put out by factories that are en
deavoring to compete with the E-M-F 30.
The cost of material has become $
much mooted point since the E-M-F Com
pany's recent announcement of a lowered
price. Other manufacturers—to be blunt,
assemblers—have rushed into print with
the statement that material actually
costs more than it used to.
It does. There's a good reason. Man

The E.M.F. Company reaped the har

over themselves to sell their output to a

"As for the car itself, we are content to
rest with a mighty brief argument. There
are more than 20,000 E.M.F. Co. automo
biles in America, and they're driven by
20,000 of the best satisfied human beings
in this broad land.
Of course you want speed. A stock
E-M.F. 30 just like the one you can buy
for $1,000 made a clean sweep of the
events in its class at the Atlanta Speed

world's*class record in one event and a
speedway class mark in the other. The
same car was first home of the American
cars in the Tiedman trophy event on the
Grand Prize course at Savannah—190.3
miles at a rate of better than 55 miles an
hour. In one or more of these three

You want durability. The first E.M.F.
30 ever shipped into Dixieland is running
daily, has covered 60,000 mile^in Georgia
and is a bit better than new right now,
with her old equipment virtually intact.
You want economy. The E.M.F. 30 as
everyone knows, is a poem in strength,
