CAR SHORTAGE IN BOSTON.

The New York Times
December 19, 1909


Business Outlook in New England is Very Encouraging.

Special to The New York Times.

BOSTON, Mass., Dec. 18.—There are plenty of local automobile salesrooms in which the salesmen are already beginning to talk of a shortage of good Spring deliveries, and some of them will not consider anything but a cash offer, having reached the satisfactory position where they do not need to trade in used cars in order to make ready sales.  These conditions are found in the older and longest established houses, but younger agents who have only recently entered the field express themselves as wholly satisfied with the manner in which the public is taking hold of the cars they have to offer.

Ten or twelve new agencies have been established in Boston this Fall, and, according to rumors prevalent in the trade, many more will be placed here early in the new year.

The annual meeting of the Bay State Automobile Association as provided for in the by-laws must be held on Monday, Jan. 3, but as many members of the association will be in New York on that date, attending the automobile show, the Directors have decided to recommend that the annual meeting adjourn to a later date, before proceeding to the election of officers.
