ISITORS to General Motors' 1168-acre Proving Ground marvel at the
sight of a complete weather bureau and ask what it is for. '
The answer is that in the testing of cars every possible factor that
might affect a car's performance is considered by General Motors'
engineers., ;. ; - 1 ) '
So precise are some of the tests that even the difference between a
sunny day and a partly cloudy day- or between a north breeze and a .
south breeze is considered.
With each day's record of the mechanical tests applied to a car on
the roads and hills of the Proving Ground is included a report of the
exact weather conditions prevailing. The engiaccrs then can know
how weather affects performance, and can have a comparable record so
that every car tested is given an equal opportunity to prove itself
under exactly the same conditions. V

Proving Ground before they were introduced to the public. Read
