He looks for permanent, enduring quality-not mere surface veneer. He looks to the integrity of the manufacturer, the critical expressions of the average owner and the history of the product over a period of years. It Is on this basi9 that we would have you consider the Paige. From the standpoint of initial cost, our's is not a cheap motor car. There ere many cars on the market ^at sell for le99 money than the . Paige and we coutd readily bui|d them ouJseives if we considered that the best;|x)Iicy. . But we don't. We firmly believe' that self-respect, comfort, and enduring satisfacltion have an actual market value. So we build those things into our pro^ct. We take just a littte more timth-^just a little more care in the selection of materials-just  little more priiie in our work. > And the result is a real motor car-not a makeshift or convv promise. In brief, while we agree that first cost i� an important consideration, we are convinced that Ultimate cost is vastly more important. We believe that the only true test of eccwiomy is twelve months of hard, gruelling service on the road. We believe that freedom from repair bills and excessive depreciation is infinitely more desirable than a mere catch-penny list price. ' ITncse are our convictions."
