X FOR ALDERMAN Inserted by t. W. BASTEDO INDEPENDENT On a long lonely road its nice to know what s behind you. We know the thoughts-, that must be racing through your mind about buying an imported car. After all, you've probably heard all sorts of truths and half truths. We'd like to tell you about our- selves first hand. What's really behind you when you buy a Toyota. First of all, the people at Toyota know and understand what it takes to make a great car. If you've seen any Toyota car, you'd know what we're talking about. The little things mean as much as the big things. And the same pride we've taken in building Toyotas carries over to our pa'rts and service. It must be working, because now Toyota dealers stretch across the length and breadth of Canada and the list continues growing. Growing because Toyota is now the fourth largest car maker in the world, because of the quality of our cars and because of accessible, dependable service. So, to sum it all up. It's nice to know that after you've bought a Toyota, the road ahead is a lot easier to travel because of what's behind you.
