During the past fifteen years over 7,500,000 Ford ears have been placed in the hands of retail customers---more than a millilon and a half of them within the past twelve months---and yet there are ,till millions of families who are hopefully looking forward to the day when they can own a Ford And now the way is open. Under the terms of this plan you can select your Ford Car, set aside a small amount each week'and you will be surprised how soon you will own it. In the meantime your money will be safely deposited to your credit where it will draw interest. Think it over. Five dollars will start an account The whole family can participate in it  father, mother, brothers and sisters each doing a litOe. Why not start today. Stop in and talk it over with your local Ford dealer. He will be glad to fully explain the details of the plan and help you get atarted toward the ownership of a Ford car. L. T. Von+r..
