Because Practical and Economical
Probably the best eviednce of the
practical nature of OAKLAND cars is
found in the fact ihat the large major
ity of . OAKLAND owners is found
among merchants, farmers, and profes
sional men a very discriminating class
of buyers. The demand of the farmer
for a sensible, practical and economical
car, as well as the merchant's know
ledge of values and the professional
man's appreciation of correct princi
ples of design and construction results
in their seceltion of the OAKLAND for
its practical utility. .
The practical results of the elimin
ation of unnecessary weight without
sacrificing an ample margin of safety
in every part are shown by reports of
OAKLAND owners which show regu
larly a gasoline mileage of. from 18 to
.25 miles per gallon, 8000 to 12,000 miles
per set of tires, and correspondingly
low costs of maintenance.

Europe Welcomes The
NOW and then you read something about "French style and line" fa
automobiles, or perhaps it's "the newest English idea." And some
folks have gone across to get the newest suggestions.
Europe hasn't built automobiles for five years and Europe is crying for
new cars and good cars.
America's style Is Europe's style now.
The Chandler Six, popular in many other countries for years but kept out
of Europe the past three years because of war-time prohibition of shipments,
is welcomed everywhere in Europe now welcomed for the excellence of it
performance, and quite as much for the beauty of its styles of body.
The Chandler, represented in the British Isles by Messrs. H. G. Burford
&Lompany, , Ltd., of London, was exhibited by that old established English
automotive house, at the great Olympia Motor Show,
and was "quite the sensation of the show," says a London cable,
inree hundred and seventy Chandlers were sold in two days."
Apparently England is greatly pleased with America's best style fa
