Presumably they had some mechanized method to process all the
data collected during trials. The C-P-C was popular in those

Also, two page color ad on Buick's "greatness".

Look on the left side of the picture. That, most likely, is their
datalogger. Looks like they're tracing at least 7 different
parameters on it.
