Willie : cl
IS IT a good used car at the right price or is it any car at a, low price?
Is the final answer in the first cost or in the final cost? :.- -Can
csed cars be traded in or sold for less than a price that is just to all
parties concerned? . inuo v ' i ' -
Somebody lias to pay for everythirj. What you get for nothing is a gift or
it is good for nc h:T!: The i??irrJ cn ray used cars are commensurate with
the goods delivefed and no higher.
I am in a 'permanent business. r The only way I can live and 'thrive is to
deliver the right goods at the right price. Too much bargain "or too much
profit would throttle me out of being. YOU CAN STOP A MOTOR WITII
TOO LITTLE GAS OR TOO MUCH. AND REPUTATION, THE ELEC
TRIC SPARK, WONT FIRE A DISHONEST MIXTURE." ' '
I have an exceptional stock of good used cars which may be purchased at
right prices for cash or on liberal terms. Why not trade in your old car
on a better one. There are several excellent buys In enclosed models which
should appeal to you. . - i

Unquestionably, the, most corrrpelling" tribute
to the car's stamina is its widespread use by.
farmers, ranchmen, surveyors, salesmen and
others who travel isolated roads in all sorts
These men will tell you that a good polishing"
restores ; the durable , finish to its original
brightness after the car has been caked ..with
mud for weeks.
To them it is a matter of vital, importance,
too, that Dodge Brothers' powerful starter '
functions promptly after prolonged exposure -.

Nor is any group of owners more constantly
impressed by those elements of excess value
which characterize not! only the Type-B

Brothers build. . . -.
