(Studio) Compact and subcompact cars aren't selling.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Elmhurst, Illinois) General Motors Corporation and AMC have stopped making small cars and are offering discounts on them. [Dealer Bob BOWYER - says economy is cause; cites reasons.] Effect of discounts on sales noted. [Customer John GREENAN - says price knocked off makes difference.] Ford Motors has yet to come up with comparable idea; company doesn't have as many surplus cars as others, perhaps because of month-long strike recently. Not known how well present rebates will work, but those in 1975 did. Chrysler doesn't have competing model.
