Maior Chambers considered "it
only fitting that he should select
Rickenbacker cars for taking pas
sengers to and from hotels fn the
various cities to the airport; from
which they make their quick trips
across the State.

shows the actual time from "ho
tel to hotel- not from; flying
field to flying field.
In other words, time of leaving
is not the time you leave the air
port but the minute the passen
ger steps into the Rickenbacker
car at one hotel' and steps out
of' another Rickenbacker at an
other hotel at end of hlsdestlna-tion.
These .fleets of Rickenbacker
sedans whisk passengers from ho

the shoTtest possible time the
route can be covered wltnout
breaking the speed laws.

All America has bestowed upon the Oakland Six the one
lure mark of preferace-ever-growing demand. State after
state has favored the car so strongly that sales have doubled
in tnejpast six montns.
The reasons for this unprecedented favor will be readily
. apparerrc.to anyone who ;tests Oakland Six abilities, .
The car has power for any hill you will encounter more
speed than you will care to use acceleration that excites envy
-smoothness of performance unmatched in its fieldana,
f better still, a rugged endurance that assures years of service.
; . Moreover, Oakland's amazing prices to 350 lower

beauty, its comfort
and its distinction,
the Packard Six is
not high in price.
For example, the five - passenger
Sedan costs but $2919 delivered
at your door witji all necessary
accessories, freight and tax paid.
The accessories include, in addi
tion to those usually furnished,
front and rear bumpers, automatic
windshield cleaner, rear view mir
ror, electric cigar lighter and spare
tire and tube and cover.
Many prefer to buy on the pay
ment plan, knowing it is much
better to buy a long life car that
way .than a short life car for cash.
Under our plan you may have a
.new Packard Six five - passenger
Sedan for $896.80 down and
$185.43 a month.
If your present car has a market
value, we will buy it from you and
apply its price on the down pay
ment on the new car.
Quite likely you would not have to
write a check for more than one or
two hundred dollars to have a new
car a Packard Six at once.
Those who buy Packard cars this
year, either for cash or on the pay
ment plan, will not have to buy
again for years to come.
Packard has offered no ye a r ly
models for more than ten years
arid haa preserved the traditional
beauty of Packard lines.
Packard cars are improved from
time to time as occasion warrants.
Progress could not be made other
wise. ' ' y
But the owner of a three," four or
five year old Packard is never
ashamed in the company of the
; ' v .. p--: ' " . " , '
Rather, he feels the, pride of pos
session that comes only with long
attachment and association.
You must live with a car to love it.
May we examine your present car
arid tell you how easily you may
have a new Packard?
