HE Pierce Arrow is a car whose final destination is neither the scrap heap

The greatest
obstacle to the ownership of an auto to many people is the cost of maintaining-
not the ordinary garage charges, but the far greater expense of repairs, adjustments
and the like. Even if you do not mind the cost of these, the annoyance and
delay when a car breaks down takes away from the pleasure of operating it.
In the famous Glidden Trophy run the Pierce Arrow went one thousand
miles without a single adjustment.
adjustment. More than that, it did not require an expert
chauffeur or mechanic to do this. The performance can be duplicated by any
American gentleman with a Pierce car.

If you are interested, we will send booklets and technical descriptions.
