 FORD DEALERS REPORT STRONG APRIL SALES IN THE BUFFALO AREA
 BUFFALO, N.Y., May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Ford dealers in the Buffalo area sold 757 cars and 688 trucks in April -- increases of 44.7 percent and 52.5 percent, respectively, over year-ago figures.
 Sales of the Ford Tempo skyrocketed by 154.3 percent, followed by the Ford Probe at 62.2 percent and the Ford Taurus at 40.9 percent over last April.
 Truck sales were paced by the Ford Aerostar van, showing a whopping 200.2 percent hike and the Ford Club Wagon at 100.1 percent over April, 1991.
 "We're encouraged that the auto market's gradual recovery continued in April, as total industry sales on an annual rate basis matched the March level," said Ronald Tillier, Ford Division's Pittsburgh regional sales manager, covering the Buffalo area. "There is emerging evidence that the economy's recovery from the recession is at least under way."
 Tillier pointed out April was the fifth month in a row that Ford's truck and total vehicle sales both increased over the prior year -- trucks by 20 percent and total vehicle sales by 13 percent.
