FORD VEHICLE SALES JUMP IN MAY

 DETROIT, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Car and truck sales for dealers in Ford Division's Detroit Region -- which includes Michigan, northern Indiana and northwest Ohio -- showed strong increases in May compared to the same period in 1992.
 Car sales rose 25 percent and trucks increased 28.5 percent, said Ted Goellner, Ford Division regional sales manager. The region's dealers sold 6,078 cars and 7,622 trucks in May -- the highest combined total in the last 18 months.
 Car sales through the first five months of the year increased 12 percent and truck sales were up 13.7 percent compared to the same period in 1992, he said.
 "Sales of the Ford Probe showed a 116 percent increase for the month and the Ford Taurus increased 53 percent," said Goellner. "The Ford Econoline Van paced the trucks with a 177 percent rise.
 "The automotive market, nationwide, definitely seems to have positive momentum, as the seasonally adjusted annual selling rate in April and May approached 14.5 million total vehicles, up from only 13.0 million in January."
 Ford's total vehicle volume in May was above the prior year for the 18th consecutive month.
