B. D. Mcintyre president of the Monroe Auto equipment co. Of Monroe. Michi Gan recently had an Opportunity to put these qualities to the test and he was so enthusiastic that he wrote the following letter to David a. Wallace president of the Chrysler sales division Chrysler corporation a i am inspired to write this letter As a result of a recent trip to Florida and return with my family. Our party consisted of three adults and four children and i did the driving. Coming through the mountainous country in Tennessee and Kentucky we ran into conditions that just about paralysed traffic in some sections. Cars were off the Road every few Miles and in some of the towns we met motorists who had completely abandoned the idea of trying to drive any farther until Road conditions had improved. One party said that it had been held up two Days wait ing for the roads to get less Glassy.

Because of the even. I smooth api cation of Power the car was Able to get traction to mount the steepest Grade no mat-1 ter How icy the Roadway. Going i Down a Slippery Hill the engine with the clutch engaged at nil times acted As a Brake and the cushioning of fluid drive was such As to keep the wheels turning evenly without Jerk or skid. Quot my driving technique was simply to keep the car constantly in High rear. In fact i never a out of High on the entire round and Here trip to Florida. That meant that that wind the Eugine always was pulling just enough to do the work required whether braking or driving Forward. The whole driving i mechanism accommodated itself i exactly to the Road conditions and according to information from Dodge engineering Headquarters the 19 40 models of Dodge luxury liners and Dodge trucks now incorporate a novel Protection which is also used in latest naval construction especially in submarines. As employed by Dodge the innovation takes the form of combining All Chassis body and in Trumen panel wiring in compact harnesses which by a unique painted treatment Are rendered wat a gasoline Oil acid and Flameproof. The Basic element of the wiring safety treatment is a recently perfected Thermo plastic which is first wound around the wiring i by specially designed machines and then processed in oven in which the plastic substance is subjected to heat of 240 degrees fahrenheit.

Thorough checking for All Desoos Check and double Check is Creed of experts special to the Enterprise Detroit feb. 24.�?Check and double Check the phrase made famous by Amos n Andy is the i daily Creed of a Small army of ture from Correct angles. Twice a Day the fixture is tested for accuracy with master gauges from the layout room. But As a Back Check on this fixture there is also a swivelled steel plate in the floor along the final inspection line and the front wheels of each completed car must Roll Over this plate.

But also the use of front radius rods and full i torque tube drive with rear radius rods to maintain the alignment of both front and rear axles. The front Spring is approximately 2 inches longer than when the car was originally introduced and the front Spring shackles now hang in a substantially vertical position to provide utmost Freedom of Spring action necessary ride stability is supplied by the ride Stabilizer. The increase in length makes the Spring More flexible As does a decrease in the number of Spring leaves. Improvements made in the Springs and i new Shock absorbers which Are used Are a material Aid toward i greater Riding Comfort. Springs Are equipped with Metal Spring least the Cost would be Small com pared to the amount of Protection it would afford the Driver of that truck not to say anything about the greater safety in driving. More sales records Are set by Pontiac continue record breaking pare in february retail sales of new font Lac cars during the first to Days of february continued the record breaking Pace the divisions sales organization Bas set in 1 940, it was announced today by la. I. Bath Rick. General sales manager of Pontiac motor division. I Sod car sales by Pontiac dealers also set a record for Tho period. In february a initial sales period 4718 new Pontiac were sold which is a 55.7 per cent increase Over the same period in january there is no need shift gears either manually mechanically. In effect there j designers and engineers. This army of inspectors starts work when new models Are merely batches of Blue prints and to i continues until the last finished or car of a Model run is loaded into is i a Box car Only one gear and that one suffices for All speeds and All loads encountered in Slippery driving. Quot it seems to me that other Chrysler owners might be interested to learn that their fluid drive Haw talents that they May never have suspected because they never have had the Opportunity to teat them. They May get lame satisfaction out of knowing that Winter can bring no Road conditions that fluid drive cannot surmount. Incidentally. Fluid drive works As Well in Snow As on ice you can get traction where even the Best set of chains wont do the work Quot Gate City motors 115 South Wrenn Street has 19 40 Chrysler on display.

Quot the rapid turnover of used cars in Pontiac dealerships is also a source of great satisfaction to the management and to the dealers.

It was spun into Wool almost As Fine As Angora mrs. Blackburn is right proud of the by Weer she knitted from it. First Point of inspection is usually the factory layout room. Here is where vendors samples Are checked against engineering Blue prints for conformity to dimensions and general specifications. At the de Soto division of Chrysler corp., for instance measurements to one ten thousandth of an Inch can be made with the various gauges at band in the layout room and any variation in submitted samples must be corrected before the Check Aud double Check boys will give the purchasing department the Quot go signal for placing Quality orders. After samples have been approved. And shipments by the Carload begin to arrive the inspection department swings into the Job of seeing that there is no deviation from the approved Quality of the samples even such relatively Quot Staples items As nuts and bolts will not be released into the production line without an of k. From the inspection department on each shipment received and where a part is highly important to tile proper operation and service of an automobile a too per cent Check May be specified. Among the items Given too per cent inspection by de Soto Are speedometers and propeller shafts. Speedometers for instance. Must be accurate within one mile per hour up to a Speed of 60 m. P. H. And there is s machine to which each incoming speedometer is attached that gives it an accuracy test at various speeds. Propeller shafts must show no whip or vibration Al speeds up to 3000 r. P. Rn., and each incoming Shaft is mounted in a testing machine which has electric lights that Flicker at the slightest sign of unbalance As the Shaft whirls. Having checked Sample items and double checked Quantity shipments t h e inspectors next turn their attention to the production lines. Aud Here again they Are not satisfied with a Quot once Over Quot but have their work so systematized that each important Job is Cross checked at least twice As an example the line up of front wheels is an operation that receives close attention at de Soto for a slight variation Here will affect steering tire Wear and safety.
