NEW SERIES SAXON "SIX with added attractions NEARLY everybody now knows the tremendous success Saxon "Six" has won. Nearly everybody knows that Saxon "Six" is the finest car for less than $1,000. Owners,of course,were first to find out this superiority. But it did not long remain merely a matter of owner knowledge. For from them, thousands of them all over this country, came reports of its speed, its smoothness, its power, its ac celeration. They spoke frequently of its extra ordinary gasoline economy, its un usual freedom from need of repair service, its superlative strength and stability. And these reports coming day after day, growing constantly, have grad ually molded and welded these indi vidual beliefs into a common public belief that Saxon "Six" is the best car in its class. Then, as if to substantiate and con firm the superiority shown in private use, Saxon "Six" began to show its superiority in public competition. It won a noted hill-climb in the East against many higher priced cars. It defeated by fifteen minutes, over a 500-mile course, a train which is the pride of the West. It thrice vanquished costlier rivals in speed, acceleration, and in hill-climb ing at the San Diego Exposition. SAXON MOTOR CAR ( "Mention the Geographic-It identifies you."
