It is of course scarcely reasonable to expect that LAFAYETTE'S per formance should conspicuously eclipse that of every other fine car. Automobile building has reached a state where quiet,smooth and reliable mechanical action is not the private possession ofany one manufacturer. The accustomed motorist will, however, find in LAFAYETTE cer tain superiorities of behavior that he has not enjoyed in other cars he has owned. Driving the car, he will feel an un common security as he takes the cor ners and abrupt curves,even at great speed, without sway, pitch or roll. He will note that the wheels follow the undulations of the road without bouncing,while the body rides poised as in flight above the sensitive springs. On hill or level he will enjoy, in every duty to which he puts the car, an instant, invariable and strain less response to his commands. Braking hard or softly, he will feel the car float to a gentle stop without chattering of brake-bands or the fa miliar drum of rear wheels on the earth. Every element in the competent action of LAFAYETTE is a natural consequent of the expert engi neering that produced the car. How agreeably this engineering translates itself into actual per formance, you will know when first your LAFAYETTE moves for ward under your control.
