 DETROIT, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Ward's Automotive Reports said


today that U.S. vehicle manufacturers will assemble an estimated 172,442 cars and trucks this week.

 Calendar year 1992 U.S. production through the end of this week stands at an estimated 6,472,314, 11.1 percent above like-1991's 5,827,318 Ward's said.
