FORD VEHICLE SALES CONTINUE TO CLIMB IN PITTSBURGH AREA

 PITTSBURGH, May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Ford dealers in the Pittsburgh area saw April car sales rise 20.4 percent and truck sales increase 13.1 percent compared to the same period the previous year.
 Dealers sold 1,418 cars and 2,194 trucks, said Ronald Tillier, manager of Ford Division's Pittsburgh Regional Sales Office.
 "Sales were paced by the Ford Thunderbird, up 73.8 percent and the Ford Ranger 4x4 pickup, up 48.9 percent," he said.
 "The automotive market appears to be accelerating its positive momentum, as witnessed by three substantial month-to-month improvements in succession," said Tillier. "We estimate that final April figures will indicate a seasonally adjusted annual selling rate above 14 million total vehicles for the first time since September of 1990 and the strongest total truck market since August of 1989."
 April was the 17th month in a row that Ford's total vehicle volume was up versus the prior year and the 16th straight month that total car volume also increased.
