L. de Villiers, writes from Salt Lake City that, apart from a few minor defects, such as the temporary failure of the rev, counter, the car has given trouble-free service. It has been quite unaffected by altitudes of eight or nine thousand feet, and has attracted the interest of American motorists wherever it has stopped.
