Theq used to call a man a "sport
when he bought an automobile
THAT was before the
days when pretty nearly
everybody owned one—or
could, if he wanted to.
There was a lot of waste
about motoring in those days.
A man spent a lot of money
on his car and never thought
very much about what he
was getting in return.
When a man buys a tire
nowadays he has a pretty
definite idea of what he ex-
pects to get out of it.
The dealer who sells him
one that gives him leaa than
he expects isn't likely to get
any more of his business.
