FORD PROBE, LINCOLN MARK VIII IN SPOTLIGHT AT AUTO SHOW

 BUFFALO, N.Y., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The 1993 Ford Probe GT and the all-new Lincoln Mark VIII head the list of Ford and Lincoln-Mercury vehicles in the spotlight at the Buffalo Auto Show.
 The Probe GT, with its advanced "cab-forward" design, has received an array of automobile honors including Motor Trend's 1993 "Car of the Year" Award.
 The Mark VIII, which has garnered rave reviews since its public introduction Dec. 26, is considered Lincoln-Mercury's "flagship vehicle of the future." The Mark VIII already has become the best-selling luxury performance coupe during its first two months in the market.
 Some of America's most-popular vehicles also will be on display at the show.
 "Ford Division remained the industry's total vehicle sales leader for the sixth consecutive year in 1992," said Ron Tillier, Ford regional sales manager. "Five of the Top Ten selling vehicles in 1992 were Ford products.
 "The F-Series truck reigns as America's best-selling vehicle, car or truck, for the 11th straight year. The Taurus -- the best-selling car in America -- ranked third, the Explorer was fifth, the Ranger seventh and the Escort was ninth."
 The employees of Ford's Buffalo Stamping Plant also share the show's spotlight with a display highlighting some of the components the plant manufactures.
 The Buffalo Auto Show runs through Sunday (Feb. 14) at the Buffalo Convention Center.
