POTOMAC LIGIIT & POWER CO. It wi]! ta/'c you about 4 minutes to fln# out w/~y ................ ~ ~; m ~ :/.:/~ o f ::o /:~ ; , COU saug yOl U21 rs.l Okay, iCs settled. You've thought about it and talked about it and now you've decided: A new car--and soon. Now for the jackpot question. Which '59 car will it be? Unless you happen to be a Mr, Gotrocks, you'll probably think pretty carefully before you finally make the move. You'll do more shopping and compare more closely. And you'll ask yourself some basic questions. How much will a neu, car cost me to buy? ltow much will it cost me to drive? What do I get for my money? There is no mystery about new car prices Until this year, it was hard to compare different makes of cars to find which offered the most value for the money. It was like comparing apples and bananas. Bht not any more. Not since all new cars are required to carry price labels. Now, for the first time, you can compare various makes and models and see exactly what you're getting for your money. It's like exposing the hole cards in a game of stud poker: You know exactly where you stand. .Why should you buy a Dodge? No one has to tell you that there are a number of cars on the market that sell for less than a Dodge. No cigar on that count. You know it and we know it. But there are things you get in a Dodge that you simply can't get in these other smaller cars. And this is important. Dodge gives you all of these things--the bigness and roominess, the comfort and ride, the luxury and prestige--for less than other cars in it~ field. BETTER BY I~" ~ ' lT"l -I BRAND NEW It's not just a few dollars less, either; m many cases it's literally hundreds of dollars less. Some Dodge models are even priced lower than the so- called "low-priced cars." (We'll be happy to show you the actual suggested retail prices.) All cars cost money to run-but how much? It would be nice if you just bought a new car and that was that. It didn't burn gas. Didu't use oil. Never needed service. But that's wishful thinking. Cars do use gas and oil. They do need service occasionally. But that doesn't mean that all cars' cost the same to drive and maintain. Not by a jugful. There's a big difference. Dodge is designed to run for less Dodge has always had a reputation for economi- cal operation. People who have owned them have found it costs less to ru~ a Dodge, and that a Dodge needs service less often. Take gasoline economy. The new Dodge 326 cu. in. Red Ram V-8 engine, because of its design and efficiency, will take you miles farther on a gallon of gas than any other V-8 in the Dodge field. You save money every mile you drive. But that's onty part of the story. The way Dodge is engineered and built saves you money on such things as engine wear, brake relining, tune-ups, spark plug replacement. When you add them all up, they represent quite a saving. Another reason why it pays to own a Dodge. What do you get for what you pay? According to Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices, Dodge generally costs lea~, model for model, than other cars in its field. Fine and dandy. But while price is important, it isn't the only consideration. The real standard of value-- whether you're buying a new car or a can of YOUR NEARBY beans--is what you get for what you pay. It's the "extras" you get at no extra cost that really determine which car is the best buy. Dodge gives you more for less Tall: is cheap. Anyone can make claims. So let's be specific about tbe extras you get in Dodge at no extra cost. Torsion-Aire Ride--conceded the finest suspension in the industry- standard equip- ment on all Dodge models. Total-Contact Brakes, Safety-Rim Wheels, Electric Windshield Wipers, lndepemtent Parking Brake--all standard on Dodge. Of course, you can also choose from such Dodge options as Push-Button Driving, Full- Time Powt~" Steering and Swing-Out Swivel Seats. There's a big difference in comfort, too Goodness knows, we certainly don't want to knock competition. But we feet obligated to point out the comfort and convenience of the '59 Dodge. If you've tried getting into some of the other '59 cars you know just what we mean. To say it is difficult would honestly be an under- statement. That's why we hope you'll come in aud compare the difference in l)odge, ttow much easier it is to get in and out of a Dodge. How much more comfortable it is to sit in a Dodge. ttow much more room you have r,o stretch out. Really, it pays to own a Dodge. it doesn't cost a penny to get the facts We don't expect you to rush in and plunk down your money for a new Dodge just on the basis of what you've read. But if what you've read seems to make sense, we do hope you'll stop in to .see, to drive and to price a Dodge. We thick it's a whale of a buy, but then maybe we're prejudioed. Why not drop in and judge for your~tf. We'll be more than happy to give 'you all the facts. No obligation, of course. DODGE DEALER, I I II I i II III
