Hargett’s celebrate 25th wedding anniversary

This week I am including some helpful hints on what to look for when purchasing a used automobile as reported in the 1942 Agricultural Almanac: (1) Hood won’t fit may be due to accident that has sprung the frame. (2) Tires on front wheels badly cupped indicate wheels out of alignment. (3) Lights go dim when starter is used indicates that battery is poor condition. (4) Engine clattery when first started indicates sloppy pistons. (5) Inability to idle in high gear under 10 miles an hour indicates uneven compression in engine or needs a tune-up. (5) Puff of smoke from exhaust when accelerating after long idle indicates worn piston rings, pistons and cylinders. (7) Tires regrooved into the cords indicate danger and expense ahead. (8) Price in code indicates that seller is out to get all he can for the car. Look out.
