****

and finally and lastly...
Let this description conclude with Mr. Ford's own comment which appears on page 369 of the hard cover edition (also in this edition) and it may ring a bell:

"Always Insist Upon Genuine Ford Parts

"ONLY Genuine Ford parts should ever be used in repairing Ford cars. Ford parts are specially designed and constructed to meet the various strains and stresses to which the car is subjected.

"Genuine Ford parts are sold at prices as low as is consistent with high quality. It is false economy to buy imitation parts at cheap prices both from a standpoint of serviceability and the possibility of endangering life and limb as a result of using inferior materials.

"If you do not do your own repairing, make sure that genuine Ford parts are used in repairing your car by taking it to an authorized Ford dealer or service station to have the work done."
