PONTIAC GRAND AM SETS THIRD CONSECUTIVE SALES RECORD

 PONTIAC, Mich., July 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Record June sales for Pontiac Grand Am, a third consecutive monthly record, helped Pontiac Division to an eight percent June sales increase versus the same period last year. June sales gains were also posted by Sunbird, Bonneville and Trans Sport as Pontiac sold 60,740 vehicles -- the division's highest monthly sales volume since June 1990.
 "Grand Am's strong sales numbers continue to challenge the imports and we think June sales will further solidify our position as the number one selling compact car in the industry," said Pontiac General Manager John G. Middlebrook. "We're counting on this performance to put us in a a solid fourth place in the market."
 Grand Am sales in June of 26,504 represents a 20 percent increase over June '92 and is the highest June volume in history. Overall, Grand Am's model-year sales are up 11 percent over last year through June and calendar year sales have increased four percent for the same time period.
 Pontiac's strong performance was bolstered by Trans Sport's 1,512 deliveries in June -- a sales record for the last ten days of June and the second highest ten-day sales period in Trans Sport history. The Pontiac Sunbird continues to provide strong sales with a 22 percent increase in June over the same time period last year and a 19 percent calendar year sales increase through June.
