Judge by What It Did In this day of Light Sixes, with some 31 models, thousands of men ask, "Which is best?" Can you pick out the coming leader in a crowd of college students ? Or say what leading man of now will attain a monument ? Nor can you in cars. None can be judged by prospects or promises. The verdict of history alone is decisive. Hudson Has a History The HUDSON Light Six, in last year's model and this one, has been driven some 3.0 million miles in the hands of over 12,000 owners. What those men say is history. Any user will tell you that the HUDSON has proved itself faultless, sturdy, economical, ideal. Then the history of former HUDSONS gives confidence in this. The HUDSON success is marvelous. And it grows with experience. HUDSON sales have trebled in the past two years. The history of Howard E. Coffin, this car's famous designer, is another convincing factor. He is a 12-year leader in motor-car engineering. His models have always been right. They have always established a new high mark in their class. Is This-or-That Car Like the Hudson? Our dealers are asked-perhaps a thousand times daily-" How does This-or-That car com pare with the HUDSON ?" Outside of appear ance and evident features, no one can answer that. The Light Six is a new type. In its creation all old-time standards had to be revised. It in volves a new-type motor. It requires special steels. To attain this lightness a thousand parts had to be re-designed. The Light Six, to be sturdy, must have ex ceptional quality. The questions of strength and endurance, upkeep and repair, must be answered by time and tests. In the HUDSON those questions are answered. Waste is Unpopular The Light Six is in vogue now because waste is unpopular. Needless size and weight, with their over-tax, offend the spirit of the times The HUDSON is this Light Six type carried to perfection. It shows the result of four years of refinement. Every part and detail shows the final touch. And it is a time-tested production. Its supremacy shows in lines and finish, in luxury and equipment, in its evident class. These facts, with its history, will make it your first choice. Now is the time to prove that before the over-demand which comes to every leading model every spring. 7-Passenger Phaeton, $1550, f. o. b. Detroit Four other body styles The HUDSON Company neverloses interest in the cars it sells. So long as a car is in service we maintain our interest in the character of its service. That's one great reason for HUDSON reputation. HUDSON MOTOR CAR CO., DETROIT, MICH. 'Mention the Geographic-It identifies you."
