 RECORD CROWDS FLOOD JAVITS CENTER FOR NEW YORK AUTO SHOW DEBUTING
 CARS AND CELEBRITY APPEARANCES ATTRACT MOST ATTENTION
 NEW YORK, April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 340,000 people have paid admission on the first three days, April 18-20, of the New York International Automobile Show at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, a pace putting the 1990 attendance record of 1.2 million in jeopardy.
 The Auto Show continues through this Sunday, April 26.
 These unprecedented crowds (7.2 percent above 1991) confirm that the New York Auto Show is the nation's largest automotive exhibition with the most cars on display (more than 1,200) and the highest attendance (1992 will be the fourth consecutive year with over one million attendees).
 Attracting the most attention at the show have been a number of vehicles making their debuts and a series of celebrity appearances.
 Cadillac is debuting its 1993 Brougham, BMW is debuting its 525i Touring Wagon, and two new exotic sports cars will be shown, the $225,000 IsoRivolta Grifo from Modena, Italy and the American-made Vector Avtech WX3. Other cars of interest are the Mazda Suitcase car, the Mitsubishi Aluma Coupe "Hot Rod", the Subaru Rioma, the Dodge Viper and Chrysler's production-ready electric minivan.
 Upcoming celebrity appearances include St. John's basketball star Malik Sealy, Wednesday, April 22, 5 - 7 p.m.; WFAN's "Mike and the Mad Dog," Thursday, April 23, 1 - 3 p.m.; Basketball Hall-of-Famer Earl "The Pearl" Monroe, Thursday, April 23, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.; 1990 Indy 500 Champ Aris Luyendyck, Saturday, April 25, Noon - 2 p.m.; and Olympic Gold Medalist skier Donna Weinbrecht, at the Subaru Exhibit Saturday, April 25, 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. and 6:30 - 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, April 26, 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
