Automobile Value A way has been found to increase the tradein value of cars approxi mately 10 per cent to make the re sale of used cars easier and to take the whole secondhand car problem out of the pig in the bag class This ist done by means of a re corded lubrication service that gives car owners a book in which it re cords exactly what has been done to the car and when it has been done That means that when a man offers his car for sale he can show the prospective buyer a written record of just what past care he has given the car in the way of lubrication For of all things to know in buy ing a secondhand car the most Im portant is that of past lubrication A car that 1 not had proper lu brication will give less than a third of the service that will be given by a car that has beeu properly and sys tematically lubricated Alemite high pressure lubrication systems provide high pressure lu brication and are so amazingly simple in detail that a child can un derstand their mode of
