 WARD'S REPORTS ESTIMATED PRODUCTION
 DETROIT, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Ward's Automotive Reports today


announced that U.S. car and truck assemblers will produce an estimated 161,357 vehicles this week.
 This week's scheduled output is 41.3 percent above the revised number of cars and trucks built last week, Ward's said. The weekly newsletter attributed the robust week-to-week rise to General Motors Corp. restarting the assembly lines at its North American automotive plants this week after a two-week companywide shutdown.
 Seven regularly active Big Three and transplant assembly facilities in the U.S. were closed this week for model-year changeovers, vacation and inventory control, added Ward's.
 Calendar-year 1992 U.S. production through the end of this week stands at an estimated 5,719,914, 11.2 percent above like-1991, Ward's said.
 Of the cars slated for production this week in the United States, General Motors Corp. accounted for 37.8 percent; Ford Motor Co., 16.8 percent; Chrysler Corp., 11.9 percent; Honda of America Mfg. Inc., 9.9 percent; Mazda Motor Mfg. (USA) Corp., 6.5 percent; Toyota Motor Mfg. USA Inc., 5.5 percent; New United Motor Mfg. Inc., 4.4 percent; Nissan Motor Mfg.
