|Motorings "Magic Carpet" Hydra-Matic:
Did you ever realise how many motions it takes to drive
a car with a conventional transmission? Watch closely
- she's ready to start on her drive.
With one hand she
steers, the other manipulates the gear-shifter. One
foot operates the clutch, the other feeds the gas and
there you are.
After 19 distinct manual operations she's
finally under-way. Not so with Oldsmobile's Hydra-Matic
There's no clutch pedal to push, and the usual
gear-shifter is replaced by this simple direction selector.
Just set the selector at Drive, then step on the accelerator
and your off.
All shifting is automatic, Oldsmobile's
Hydra-Martic is simplicity it'self.
