WARD'S REPORTS ESTIMATED PRODUCTION

 DETROIT, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. car and truck assemblers will produce an estimated 217,502 vehicles this week, Ward's Automotive Reports announced today.
 This week's scheduled output is 7.5 percent lower than last week's revised U.S. car/truck build of 235,054, due in part to severe weather conditions that hit most of the country. This week's estimated output, however, is 9.8 percent above year-ago, Ward's said.
 Additionally, all regularly active U.S. car and truck assembly plants are operating this week, Ward's announced.
 Calendar-year 1993 U.S. vehicle production through the end of this week stands at an estimated 2,375,439, 18.4 percent ahead of like-1992, Ward's said.
 Of the cars and trucks slated for production this week in the United States, General Motors Corp. accounts for 38.1 percent; Ford Motor Co., 29.8 percent; Chrysler Corp., 12.8 percent; Honda of America Mfg.
