Driving Requires Same Car Care As Racing By FKED AGAUASHIAX. Champion Spark Plug Co. Highway Safety Tcitm Is highway driving in any way the same as race track driving? In my experiences I've found many similarities. For example, there isn't a lace driver in Hie world who would go out on a track know- ing that his car is not 100 per Kent rnechani c a 11 y -sound. Shouldn't the average motorist also have (his confidence in his own car? Once you know tlte vehicle is perfect, you can concentrate on driving skills, wihoiit worrying whether (tic brakes are going to grab, or whether the (.ires are safe, or whether the steering components are going give out at a crucial time. When yotir ear is in excellent condition, you hav.e confidence in it, and you driving ability re- flects this confidence. Another similarity 1. find be- FHED AGAIIASUIAN iween highway driving and race driving is what I call "the escape route plan." Planning ahead while driving helps keep me alert and helps keep my Faulty Ignition Leads Automobile-Owner Woes In planning your car mainte- sianace, it's wise to know where trouble is likely to strike. A list of the most frequent causes of trouble is contained'in a survey of the Missouri Auto Club in the U.S. 'Hie Club's recently opened St. Louis diagnostic centra tab- ulated defects found on the first cars to pass through its lanes. According to the results revealed by F. B. Oldham, Club technical services direc- tor, these were the most fre- quent critical faults: f. Ignition (points, conden- ser, dwell and variation, coil, timing, spark plug perform- ance, ignition under load) j.StX) defects or .94 per car. 2. Front End (including alignment, front suspension, pi- vots and shocks) de- fects .90 Her car. 3. Brake.s (including brake lining thickness and condition, adjustment, handbrake, drum disc condition, brakes hoses, Safe Distance What's a safe distance to fol- low another ear? Experts re- une car length for overy 10 miles per hour of speed on dry roads. When roads are slippery, the disUww should be dwibled. pedal pressure, brake balance and progression) or defects per car. 4. Headlamps (including candle power, aim, warning lights and retraction) or .66 defects per car. 5. Tires (including tire pressure, tread depth and walls) IB2 or .58 per car. 5. Steering Linkage (in- cluding steering box, He-rods, steering arm and hall joinls) 402 or .25 per car. The St. Louis facility, first of its kind ever run by an Auto Club, performs only diagnostic work. Repairs, if needed, are performed at area facilities with the Club making no re- commendations on where to go. Take A Brsak Safety experts advise novel- drive more than three hours without stopping to rest on a long trip. Getting out of the car tu stretch or stopping for coffee is recommended to avoid excessive, driving su-ain. mind on my driving. In my- own mind I've been on the shoulders ol expressways and in ditches all over Uie country. In fact, I've always "driven" the grass infield of the Indian- apolis Speedway with every cir- cuit, and several times, having an escape route like this has helped me and saved my car. Driver attitude also plays an important role, whcliier on the highway, or on the race track. The racing driver with an im- mature attitude, one who loses his temper, one who ''gets even" with other drivers or one who shows off, scon finds him- self out of the racing in one way or another. Similarly, i in m a t it r i f y catches up with the motorist on Vhe street. They are the ones who leave a stretch of rubber at traffic lights, who pass on curves and hills and ill and out of traffic, and ones who have unnecessary and distracting doo-dads banging around the rear window and mirrors. I'm not saying that an expert driver on the highway can take the wheel of a race car and come out with a good showing. Hut he is the kind of driver who has the qualifications and pre- requisites that are necessary for further training which could make him a profession a 1 driver. BUILT-IN QUALITY The average age of a motor car in this country is S.6 years. The average truck is 7.6 years old. It's a sign that built-in quality along with gosd mainte- nance helps any car run long- er. HOT NKWS ON Blt.AKES In an average day's driving brakes build np enough energy io heat your home.
