He Says This Type, of Tire
Will 'Tend to Do Away
. With the Road Hog !
Joe Boyer, winner this" year of
the greatest speed and endurance
event in motordom the Indiana
polis 5 00-mile race, which has be
come the annual Decoration Day
attraction for the entire middle
west has selected the1 Chrysler
six roadster for his personal use.
He drove it, from Detroit to In
dianapolis before the race.
Ford cars . of the roadster type.
They are used In every part of the
pairs, store and miscellaneous
United States and! Canada and
under all sorts of conditions. The
average operating cost of these
cars for the first eleven mentha
of 1923 was 7.6 cents per mile, as
against 8.4 cents' per mile in 1922.
This ; Includes depreciation, tires,
gas and oil, replacement and re
pairs,, store and miscellaneous
Items. The initial cost of, the car
is written off in eighteen months.
Mr. Thompson's survey shows
the difference in operating cost
between good road and bad road
states, amounting In some cases to
2.8 cents a' mile. In California,
for instance, where the ' concrete
roads are always good for auto
traffic and where cars can be used
every day in the year, the average
cost of operation, he says includ
ing a heavy depreciation charge, is
6.4 cents per mile. ! f ; .
