GRAND AM RECORD SALES MONTH CONTINUES PONTIAC'S LEAD OVER HONDA DIVISION IN 1993

 PONTIAC, Mich., June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- A string of sales records for the hot-selling Grand Am have made Pontiac the fourth best-selling nameplate in the industry, extending the Excitement Division's lead over Honda Division in the calendar year for the third straight month.
 Grand Am sales in May of 27,005 units -- the highest for any month in the vehicle's nine-year history -- secured its title as the industry's top-selling compact car for the month and calendar year. In addition, Grand Am is the industry's fifth most popular carline in May.
 Strong sales performances by other Pontiacs -- including a record 10,945 Grand Prixs and a 13.2-percent increase for Bonneville during May -- also contributed to the division's success.
 "Pontiac has a lot to be excited about lately," noted Pontiac General Manager John G. Middlebrook. "Our competitive financing program, SmartDrive, is second to none in the industry and the record sales levels of Grand Am, Grand Prix and Bonneville are a direct reflection of it," he added.
