 WARD'S REPORTS ESTIMATED PRODUCTION
 DETROIT, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. vehicle manufacturers will


produce an estimated 119,254 cars and trucks this week, Ward's Automotive Reports said today.
 Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, this week's planned three-day output is 37.0 percent below last week's actual build of 189,193, and 31.6 percent below same-week 1990's tally. However, this week's estimated daily rate of 39,751 is 5.1 percent higher than last week's and 14.0 percent higher than year-ago, Ward's said.
 Only five regularly active U.S. light-vehicle plants -- compared with 12 last week -- are temporarily closed this week for inventory adjustment.
 Estimated 1991 year-to-date U.S. vehicle output through the end of this week is 8,205,612 units, 11.8 percent below like-1990's total of 9,298,180, reported Ward's.
 Of the cars produced this week in the United States, General Motors Corp.'s share is 51.8 percent; Ford Motor Co., 14.1 percent; Honda of America Mfg.
