UPI Auto Writer Edward S. Lechtzin has talked to auto executives, dealers, salesmen, and consumers about them. He has put together a series of five stories that cover basic things that concern the industry and, just as important, the automobile buyer. Price increases averaging $450 await purchasers of 1975 models and no end to the rising cost is in sight. About 4 million drivers who have paid about $50 for the complex buckle-up-bcfore-you-drive safety belt system which cost the industry about $200 million have found ways to avoid using it. Owners of 1975 models must buy unleaded gasoline at higher prices, or else ruin their expensive catalytic converters with leaded gas. On the bright side, big cars are selling again after a winter slump induced by the energy crisis. The sales surge is expected to continue mainly because buyers are looking for bargains before the prices go up again. Small car enthusiasts can choose from an array of luxury compacts or sporty models.
