 NOTE: Percentage changes are based on daily selling rates.
 The following may be attributed to Robert L. Rewey, vice president - Marketing and Sales Operations, Ford North American Automotive Operations:
 "Ford's total vehicle volume in June was above the prior year for the nineteenth consecutive month. With individual retail customers more than offsetting a year-to-year decline in rental car deliveries, our total car volume rose for the eighteenth month in a row. Total Ford truck sales of 166,067 in June were an all-time record for any month and 17 percent above June, 1992.
 "We're particularly pleased with the June sales performance of our major new 1993 model products. The Ford Probe was up 79 percent over June, 1992. Ranger sales of 32,746 (up 23 percent), spurred by the new Splash model, reached their highest level for any month since June, 1987. Volume for the Lincoln Mark VIII was up ten-fold and the all-new Mercury Villager continued to sell at a torrid pace, establishing another new monthly sales record (7,277).
 "Among other notable highlights, the Ford Taurus remained America's best-selling car. (Notably, in the first nine months of the 1993 model year, combined Taurus and Mercury Sable sales already have surpassed 400,000 units.) Both the Ford Thunderbird and Mercury Cougar again registered dramatic volume jumps in June, as growing numbers of consumers recognized their outstanding value. The new Cobra model helped Mustang sales to climb 15 percent. The Ford F-Series pickup remained America's best-selling vehicle, car or truck. And sales of the Ford Explorer, America's favorite utility vehicle, exceeded 27,000 units for the second successive month and only the fourth time ever."
 "Reflecting on the first half of 1993, the automotive market definitely seems to have positive momentum. The seasonally adjusted annual selling rate in the Second Quarter was over 14.5 million total cars and trucks, an improvement of more than a million vehicles versus both the First Quarter of this year and April-June of 1992. More importantly, Ford's sales growth has outstripped the market as a whole, boosting our total share to its highest level since 1978."
