1,600 miles in a Pullman.
Our first afternoon we drove from Detroit to Kalamazoo.
151 miles. Our second forenoon from Kalamazoo to Chicago, 179
miles. We spent moat of the third day in Chicago, driving that
afternoon to Rochelle, 84 milee. The next day we drove from
Rochelle to Belle Plains, 199 milee. The next day from Belle
Plains to Omaha, 888 miles. The next day from Omaha to Lex
ington. 839 milee. Wednesday from Lexington to Cheyenne, 310
milee. Thursday morning from Cheyenne to Denver, 112 milee.
in two hours ana fifty minutes.
We got as high as IS milee to the gallon of gasoline and the
average for the trip was 12.6 miles.
We were making the trip leUureiy, and with little interest in
the time consumed between any two points, but when we got into
Chicago, it suddenly came to us that we had pasead every car go
ing our way on every part of the road; the thought was fatal. We
got interested in the thing. I will confess that when we again
took the road we both had the same secret sporting curiosity. We
wondered how long we could keep it up.
We kept it up dear into Denver.
This Hudson Super-Six, which left the factory less two
weeks ago, passed every automobile we came in sight of from De
troit to Denver—1,580 milee.
We were raced time and again on muddy roads and on good
roads, but every car we tackled was finally dropped behind.
I have an idea that this mud caked car, just ss it stands on our
salesroom floor, can go out tomorrow and do seventy-five miles an
hour without a whimper.
That much speed is not necessary; it is not even important.
But you gentlemen who own Super-Sixes probably feel just aa we
do—that it's rather satisfying to know that you have a car that
could dean up the road if you wanted it to.
And there is one other thing that I believe will interest all
owners ofthe Super-Six.^ It la the fact thatlaDetooit, the center
^itself. On'thia visit I was surprised to find how unanimously its
position Is conceded. Even the livery men along the curb are now
Knn«ring fancy brass plates on all their Hudson cars to catch the
public's eye with the magic of the name.
The Super-Six motor is the great achievement of the year.
19,900 Hudson Super-Sixes are now in dally road use. Owners
•f these cars are selUag the factory output of 150 ekrs per day.
I found also that the Hudson factory is being visited by an
average of twenty-five Hudson dealers per day, trying to get more
deliveries. The Sales Department’s waiting room is full constant
ly ; the men who are handling the allotment of can have had to
box themselves in to got time to carry on their work. •
These sound like exaggeration, bat they are the sober
truth. The Hudson Super-Six is not only the achievement of the

before I made this trip. I wonder atill more now.
