If unlucky, it could be fatal. Tell wide-awake Frank that the window needn't be open all the way to guard against the CO menace But, more impor- tant, tell him to have your car's exhaust system checked every time it's up on the service rack (or at least every six Dear DeDe: I must confess, I sometimes do not unders- tand the mentafity of the motoring public. I've had my car for sale for about a month and nr buyers. I have always made sure the car is in top operating con- dition. The brakes are almost new, the exhaust system is brand new and there is not one thing wrong with it mechanically. There are a few dents and a rust hole or two and the paint is kind of shabby, I'll admit. But it's not the paint job that will carry people around safely. It's the general mechanical condition. Why are people such fools? Why don't they know a good car when they see it? NO SALE NORMAN Perth Amboy, N.J. Dear No Sale: What you say may be true No car ever had starting trouble because of a faded paint job or couldn't stop in time because of a dinged fender. But you are learning a fact of car life Anyone in the car-selling business can tell you a well maintained exterior can bring several hundred dollars more at trade-in time And as you are noticing, a shabby car may attract no customers at all. You don't tell me the age of your car or how it is equipped but it might pay you to have the dents bumped out, rust repaired and the car painted. In any case, take care of your next car as well on the sur- face as you do under the skin. ieck power steering car is equipped per steering, you nk that this system complicated and serviced by highly technicians using ?cial tools. not the case. id, a power steer- >m is considerably nplex than a non- vstem.

But, the firm says, as bumper heights become standard and better data on the cost of improved bumper systems becomes available, the situation will change. The new bumper system, designed to withstand an impact of five miles an hour without damage, was introduced on the 1974 car models.
