Last May, in glaring headlines, the newspapers announced a sensational record in 7 days, 11 hours and 53 hy a famous Eight.. That considered beaten by another And now the Hudton the trip In 5 days, 3 hours and 31 minutes. Breaking laat spring's best rtcord by more than two days. Break- ing the beit record made since then by 14 hours and 59 mlnutel. The Winner in Every Great Test The Hudson Super-Six has now won everyrrecord It has sought. It has won every slock car record -from one to 100 miles. It has made faster speed with fl stock motor than waa ever ir.2de per hour. It has broken all records for 24 mlTes. That IB 62 per cent, farther than any.jtock motored ever xvent In that time before. It won the Pike's Peak Hill greatest hill climbing test ever 20 ureal cars specially built for the climb. And now, as a achievement, It breaks the record which means moro-than Trans- continental record. -j All Due to Endurance The Hudson Super-Six now .-holds -all records. All ;the; .'made with special racing cars such .aa tuyerv never get. And practically all of thofe records have been won by the Super.Six cnduraneo. Cars with more power and cars with rnore spied have sought for nearly all these rtcords. But the Super-Six because It kept its pace. In test after test the Super-Six has been Hie .only car that did not In this ocean to ocean trip miles, across mountains and at one linio two miles above sea Super-Six averaged'for the whole trip 28.H milts per hour. Yet il wsnt through 350 towns and cities' under speed restric- tions. Fret ion Almost Nil That Is the great fact about the Hudson Super-Six Its chlffist supremacy lies in endurance. The Super- Six Invention added 60 per cent- to our motor's efficiency, solely by reducing vibration. It reduced motor friction lo. almost nil. By nearly ending friction it has nearly ended wear. And all these world's records are due mainly to that fact. The motor is small.and light. It Is similar in size to scores of light sixes. But the Super-Six Invention has made it 80 per cent, efficient. It has made it fully twice as enduring..' You will, never want your.'car lo do what the Super-Six has.done. But you do want the ear which shows this endurance. And every month's use will' increase your regret IF you fall to set the Supsr.Six. Seven-passenger Tourirg Car, K, 0. n. Ltlhbridgc. THE H. T. HEN SAXON SIX The Saxon Six The Saxon Six is the lowest priced car in (he world. Beside the wonder- fully efficient 30-35 H, P. Conlinentnl six-cylinder motor, the two unit Wagner starting and liglilingsyslcni, Timkcn axles and 112 inch wheel base, Remy inch lires, non-skid in rear and self -equalizing brakes we have in this new series touring-car made the beautiful streamline bodies bigger, with more ICR room and seat room; built wider daors: finished the bcdv and lionnct in one cnl ir: made wider and more graceful crown fenders: made the crankshaft full (wo inches H diameter; introduced full rear cantilever springs in. long; made (lie valve springs of the lincst vanadium {jlcel; introduced a new type nf carburetor (ruaranlcrinjr greater efficiency anrt easier starlirip; even with low grade gasoline: mounted all instruments on metal plite on cowl dash, provided oblique windshield i and Grecian rear bow top, as well as many, other important improvements that add great- ly to the beauty and salcability of these truly wonderful cars. This Saxon Six a New Pace in Per- formance Itcpca'cdly Uas Six proved itself the superior car. Not alone in private use.'but in1 public competition too. A in point is the motor demonstra- tion at .San nicgo Fair when Saxon Six won over bolh eights and hvrlves as well as other sixes in speed in hill climbing and quick get- awuy. By conlimied ami consistent experimenta- tion anri research work Saxon Six motor baa been given a smoother more supple power flow, accomplishing at the same lime almost the complete elimination of all vibration. Think of what this advancement means in quicker acceleration in increased flexibility and above all in motor endurance. Think of what it means coupled with the easy-ridinp; qualities of Saxon Six and its notable economy in gasoline, in oil and in repair service. Caroline Economy. On July 1st, 1916, 206 Saxon owners in all parts of the country driving stock model Saxon Sixes staged a 300-mile non-stop run to prove Ihe remarkable gasoline economy of Saxon The grand average for the 206 Saxon Sixes 23.5 miles per gallon. On Ihe 1'llh February, 1917, a lest run from Lcthbritlge to Foremost, via Taber, Grassy Lake and Ilurdell was made and the total distance of 96 miles was covered on i gallons of gasoline.
