The Popular ! "California"
Tops Made Irt Salem How
.(The closed. car' makfa n strong
appeal ta auto. users but many, of
its 'comforts and conveniences ar
counterbalanced by disagreeable
and undesirable features, It- is
top-heavy; it makes a rumbling
disagreeable sound; it develops
"fatties," and.it is awkward and
inconvenient tcj adjust to; varying
cqnditions. These undesirable fea
tures are. all overcome; and. none
of the ' desirable, features are lost
in the ceIebratd"CaHfornia' top.
This top is w called fromits Jilr
most universal adoption in - Cali
fornia, where it--originated..'- It is
light and low;: it does not "ram

position desired by a patent lock
ing device . which, absolutely pre
vents any rattle. These sllJia
panels make it possible to instaatly
change the car at win of tho occu
pants from an open to a blo?"-il
type or reverse. Tlie cost is rei
sonable and any touring car may
be Titted with the 'California" top.
the p. j; Hull Auto Top Shop,
located on. 217 West State street,
is-now making these "California"
lops here in Salem. Their fir.t
lob is completed and is now on ex
hibition, at their show rooms. It ii
ar piece nT; work of which Salem
may well be proud. It is the equal
in appearance of the finest work
manship of any auto factory and it
ia a '.'Made in Oregon" product.
