THUNDERBIRD, BRONCO LEAD FORD APRIL SALES PARADE

 CLEVELAND, May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ohio-built Ford Thunderbird and the Ford Bronco utility vehicle sparked April car and truck sales increases of 37 percent and 19 percent, respectively, for Ford dealers in Northeast Ohio.
 Thunderbird sales -- on the upswing since the start of the 1993 model year -- soared 86 percent, while Bronco sales zoomed 191 percent.
 Northeast Ohio Ford dealers sold 2,001 cars and 2,358 trucks last month.
 Other sales leaders were the Ford Probe, up 74 percent; the Ford Crown Victoria, up 68 percent; the Ford Ranger 4x4 compact pickup truck, up 85 percent, and the hot-selling Ford explorer, up 32 percent.
 "Ford's total vehicle volume in April was above the prior year for the 17th straight month," said Ronald Tillier, Ford Division's Pittsburgh Regional Sales Office, which covers Northeast Ohio. "The automotive market appears to be gaining momentum, and final April figures probably will indicate a seasonally adjusted annual selling rate of above 14 million total vehicles for the first time since September 1990."
