DOES BILLY PAYNE DRIVE A BUICK? A BMW? A NISSAN?

     Buick Motor Division has announced they will offer a special
edition Regal and Skylark to commemorate GM's  sponsorship of the
'96 U.S. Olympic Team and the Olympic Games in Atlanta.  The cars
will go on sale next year and will feature special trimmings,
including the Olympic rings embroidered into the headrests of the
Regal. (BUICK).
     THREE-CAR GARAGE?  While there is only one official beer
maker, burger and bank for the '96 Games, there's "a garage full"
of Olympic carmakers, according to the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER.
The report notes with no single automobile sponsor willing to pay
the $40M required for exclusivity, ACOG organizers divided the
category.  GM is the official domestic car, Nissan is the
official import sport utility vehicle, light truck and minivan,
while BMW is the official luxury car (AP/PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER,
11/10).
