 FEBRUARY CAR SALES INCREASE SLIGHTLY IN ATLANTA REGION
 ATLANTA, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- A 7 percent increase in car sales during February, compared to February 1991, was reported today by seven-state Atlanta Region Ford dealers.
 Lincoln-Mercury comparable sales jumped 20 percent.
 Large and luxury cars were the stars of the show.
 Robert L. Rewey, Ford Motor Company vice president - Sales Operations, said: "Some encouraging signs are emerging. Total industry sales in February ran at an estimated annual rate of 12.8 million cars and trucks.
 "That's a marked advance from January's 12.1 million rate, in spite of bad economic news and weak sentiment indices," he said.
 In the Atlanta Region, the largest February sales increases were recorded for the full-sized Lincoln Town Car, up 64 percent; Ford Crown Victoria, up 54 percent; Lincoln Continental, up 31 percent, and the popular Ford Explorer off-road utility vehicle, up 29 percent.
 Some small cars recorded noticeable increases. For example, sales of the Ford Escort increased 25 percent in February.
