This Car !s Worthy
of Your Confidence
You can buy a Saxon >:ar secure in the knowl-
edge that you are getting full value in tried
and proven motor car mechanism.
Saxon cars are built to win the confidence of
their owner — and they do. But first they
must win the confidence of their builders —
and this they could not if they embodied any
feature or any part of unproved worth.
So no Saxon principle of construction has ever
been changed until a better principle has fully
proved its greater value. And so no Saxon car
has ever embodied features of doubtful worth.
Saxon cars have simply been in a state of
transition, passing thru phase after phase of
gradual improvement without a break in pro-
duction. They are refined from time to time,
not radically changed.
Th.y ■'« in tha fullest sense of the phrase, products of
•volution. They are developed rather than built.
Isn't that the kind of s car you want — one that you
can feel confident is right before you put down your
good money for it ? If It la, then you want a Saxon.

start to answer as you would if some-
one asked you your birthday, as 'Au-
gust 5.' Then say, 'on jny birthday
this year I will be (or was) years
old.' The registrar will then fill In
the year of birth. Many people do not
carry In mind the year they were
born. This may be obtained by the
registrar by subtracting the age 111
years on this year's birthday from
