Are You Buying a
Car This Fall?
If You Are. Come Around
Take a Ride With Me.
After having run my pew 75 piodel
Overland fourteen hundred miles on an
expense of $2.40, outside of gas and
oil, I am convinced that it is th car
for this country. When buying a car,
the buyer should take under considera
tion a good many things. Is the man
you buy from where you can get to
him easy when your car does not work
right? Can repairs be had conven ient
ly and are they high in comparison
with the actual cost of the car? Is the
car built substantially and is it a stand
ard car? Has it a full floating axle
and are (the various adjustments to be
made easily pr is it necessary to tear
your car down to make a repair or fill
an oil cup? Has it a good cooling sys
tem? There are many questions a buy?
er. should ask of the dealer, And ask
for a demonstration and a guarantee,
I have taken the agency for Over
land cars in Torrance county and be
lieve that I have given the 75 model at
least, a good tst. Any car taken care
of and driven with a fair amount of
horse sense will give good service. I
mean any of the Standard made cars.
When I secured this agency I also se
cured a line of credit that will enable
me to give legitimate and substantial
people easy payment terms at a very
low rate of interest. If you are in the
market and don't care to pay spot cash,
come and see me. I am always on the
job and easy to find. And I w il) guar
antee my cusUmers the best that can
be had from sry automobile agency.
