You meet the nicest people on a Honda

Hondas are very uptown. They never gulp gas. just sip it; 200 miles to the gallon. The 1-stroke 50cc engine performs brilliantly. With just enough bite to hold an uncomplaining 45 mph. Among other niceties: 3-speed transmission, automatic clutch, cam-type brakes on both wheels. Even an optional pushbutton starter. Oh yes, the Honda 50 sells for $245, plus a modest set-up charge. You see a lot of them around these days. They’re the greatest thing on wheels. For address of your nearest dealer or other information, write: American Honda Motor Co.. Inc., Dept. BC, 100 West Alondra, Gardena, California.
