STORAGE IDEAS--ROOM BY ROOM

Now's the time to "put it all away" Unless you own a crystal ball, you probably underestimated your storage needs when you built or bought your present house. You're not alone.

HOW YOU CAN TEST DRIVE THE NEW CARS

All of the U.S. auto manufacturers build good cars, capable of tens of thousands of miles of good service if properly maintained.

ORDER YOUR CAR WITH THE OPTIONS YOU'LL NEED

With the exception of the high-performance models, all cars are engineered and designed for normal service. This means they will perform, ride, and handle very well when subjected to normal family use, and will even accommodate the occasional extra weight of a full load of adults or luggage for a family trip. They are not set up for use as a truck or for dragging around a large trailer while loaded down with the whole family and their vacation luggage.

THOSE CRITICAL FIRST 500 MILES

The first 500 miles are still the most important 500 miles in the life of a car. It's true that breaking in a new model is quite different than it was a few years ago. Then the accepted method was to "baby" the car. Now, all manufacturers recommend more or less normal driving, but caution against fast starts and stops and wide-open throttle.

WORKING WITH PLASTIC LAMINATE

Plastic laminate has a well-deserved reputation as a beautiful and trouble-free surfacing material, but an equally undeserved reputation for being expensive and difficult to apply. The convenience of having a surface so easy to clean and so durable more than makes up for the difference in cost over a painted surface, and, if you're only fairly handy, you can handle most laminate applications with simple woodworking tools.
