 FORD DEALERS REPORT STRONG SALES IN INDIANAPOLIS AREA
 INDIANAPOLIS, May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Ford dealers in the Indianapolis


area reported strong increases in car and truck sales in April.
 Indianapolis-area Ford dealers sold 565 cars and 883 trucks in April.
 Joseph King, Ford Division regional sales manager, said car sales were paced by the Ford Tempo, up 151 percent and the Ford Taurus up 54 percent compared to the same month a year ago. Sales of Ford Thunderbird rose 44 percent while sales of the Ford Escort climbed 21 percent.
 Led by the spectacular success of the Ford Explorer and all-new Econoline van, April truck sales in Indianapolis also soared. Area dealers sold more than 82 percent more Explorers, while Aerostar sales rose 74 percent and Econoline sales skyrocketed 127 percent compared to the same month a year ago. Sales of Ford F-Series trucks climbed 74 percent in April.
 "We're encouraged that the auto market's gradual recovery continued in April, as total industry sales on an annual rate basis matched the level in March," King said. "Sentiment indices have begun to improve in response to emerging evidence that the economy's recovery from the recession at last is under way."
 Overall, Ford Motor Company's (NYSE: F) total year-to-date share of the U.S. market showed the largest increase -- up eight-tenths of a percent to 20.4 percent. Ford was the only domestic automaker to post market-share gains for both cars and trucks.
