A Car Whose Quality Lifts It Above the Level of Its Price Though priced at less than $1000, Saxon "Six" has forced-actually compelled - people to think of it in the terms of costly cars. No other car we know of has ever accomplished this feat. Can you think of any car in any other price class whose superiority is as dis tinct and pronounced as that of Saxon "Six," among cars costing less than $1200? The answer, of course, is in the motor-the famous Saxon "Six" high-speed motor. Its performance to probably as near 1 perfect as has ev been attained. Consider, if you wil a certain car of "les. than-six cylinders )day is of similar price and good reputation. At a speed of twenty miles per hour this "less-than six" under test developed 1,512.73 power impulses per minute. Saxon "Six" showed 2,993, 925 impulses per minute. It is quickly apparent that the "less-than-six" motor leaves much to be desired. For the less the number of impulses per minute the less smooth is the power flow and the greater is the vibration. And vibration induces fric tion, which is, as of course you know, the fiercest foe a motor car has to face. Now you will see just how much advantage accrues from the 98% smoother power-flow of Saxon "Six," This well-known car of less-than six cylinders, previously men tioned, in repeated trials required 30 seconds to reach a 45 miles per hour speed from a stock-still stand. Under the same conditions Saxon "Six" time and again duplicated this feat in 23 seconds. This shows 22% faster pick-up in favor of Saxon "Six." This instance pictures with fair ness, we believe, the inherent superiority of Saxon "Six" over any other at less than $1200.
