 COMMENT BY J.B. FITZPATRICK, VICE PRESIDENT FOR THE GENERAL MOTORS
 COMMUNICATIONS AND MARKETING STAFF:
 During November, General Motors outperformed the overall U.S. new vehicle market. In particular, GM passenger car sales volume was up in November, with Buick, Oldsmobile, Cadillac and Saturn all reporting year-to-year passenger car sales increases. The most notable bright spots for General Motors, in an otherwise weak sales month for the industry, were the continued strong deliveries of GM's all-new full-size and luxury passenger cars. The Cadillac Seville had a 46 percent sales increase, while sales of GM's all-new full-size models were even stronger, with the Pontiac Bonneville up 71 percent, the Oldsmobile Eighty Eight Royale up 73 percent and the Buick LeSabre up 74 percent.
 Although the nation's economic recovery continues to be painfully slow for the U.S. automotive industry, initial sales reports on our all- new products are a positive signal that consumers are very much interested in the high quality and expressive styling of General Motors' newest products. When the economic recovery picks up momentum, General Motors will be in a very strong position with more new product offerings than any of our competitors -- foreign or domestic.
