The five-year program,
which calls for increased

tain standards• of excellence
and provide for strength-
ened and improved instruc-

Stanley E. Stern, board

I Don't Want to Sell You A Car
I Want to Help You Buy One.

You work hard for your money. So do I.
But I don't think that a low price alone is enough to get you to spend your
money at Jerry Glassman Oldt, or any other car dealership.
I believe people want to buy their car from a dealership they can put their
trust in. A dealership, that'll work as hard for their money as they did. Making
sure things are right — before, during and after the sale.
When you visit Glassman Olds, we'll help you pick out a car that's right for
the kind of driving you do. Then we'll 'quote you a fair price. A price as low as
any in town. Maybe lower.
And, after the sale, you'll find our smiles are just as wide, our handshakes
just as friendly when you come in for a free warranty check.
That's the way I run things at Jerry Glassman Oldsmobile. Come in and see
for yourself.
