It is more than the excellence and beauty o f Buick design—more than the greater riding comfort, power and safety that Buick provides. Buick’s value comes from the sum total o f all thc&e Buick qualities and traditions which together make up Buick character. A Buick owner fully appreciates Buick character. He knows the dependable, satisfying and trouble-free transportation which Buick gives, however long or however far a Buick owner may elect to drive his car.
