THE TOTAL production of auto- mobiles during Ihc yew IMS ex- ceed the five million mark by over two hundred thousand. Practically ulnc-lonlhs of tho world's produc- tion in automobiles were In tho United Slates and Canada. The production was more than a million increase over 1027. Open have been practically pushed off the map by the closed models, lii 1928, only six per cent of the total was of the open tour- ing car type and five per cent road- sters, both of these open styles only counting for eleven pur cent uf tho world's .production. One- fiftli of all cars made were coupes, one-fourth was of lhc two-door se- dan lype.

It is still a question, ot how muc'i loneer automobile production can In increased, especially when it 13 realized that the United Stales fur- nishes the market for the sale of cars. However, it is prob- ably reasonable to suppose that with Ihe readjustment of postwar economic and commercial prob- lems, the people ill other countries will; attain emVilc them to liny automobiles on a larger scale than previously.
