Should a Motorist Investigate Weight Before He Buys? IF the words "Look Before You Leap" were aimed only at motor car buyers and heeded they would well serve the purpose for which they were coined. Talk to the heavy-car owner a few minutes. Listen to his regrets that he didn't investigate weight before deciding on a heavy car. For one thing, had he investi gated the Franklin Car, he would nave traced Franklin popularity far beyond today's clamor for a light-weight car. ! " 1 5 Years Experience To Bank On Franklin Scientific LightWeight began in 1902. Rightfrora the start. Direct Air Cooling relieved the Franklin of 177 water cooling parts (well known trouble makers and excess baggage). Ounce by ounce, the Franklin has scientifically reduced weight by the use of light and high strength material, by relieving this material of every strain pos sible, and by the elimination of complicated mechanism. Franklin Touring Car AsWeiglrtStandard A touring car, weighing 22&0 bounds; an enclosed car. the Sedan, weighing 2610 pounds. To the experienced motorist, these Franklin weights mean more than mere figures. On the road, they mean safety, ability, comfort, and reliability. In maintenance, they mean econ omy in tires, gasoline, repairs, and depreciation. That weight figures tell you more . than trice figures is something we stand ready to demonstrate at any time.
