announcement of a 27 percent average rise in prices for 1986 cars finishes a round of Detroit price hikes that amount to as much as $2000 on some models But within days of marking up their sticker prices automakers began offering goodies like extra options and warranties that cut into the increases And market analysts say that in a few weeks cut rate financing and rebates may reappear and negate most of the increases conceivable see a return to incentives by the end of the Harvey Heinbach an automotive industry analyst at Merrill Lynch in New York said Wednesday Chrysler Corp announced its prices Wednesday following General Motors Corp and ord Motor Co which earlier an nounced raises of 3 percent and 29 percent respectively Ameri can Motors Corp raised its prices an average 24 percent That puts 1986 rnodel prices up to $2000 above those of 1985 models sold in late August and in September during fin ancing and rebate war But hidden cuts in real car prices are coming the way of consumers in the form of more free of charge options and war ranties In recent days GM has an nounced it would expand engine and drivetrain warranties of three years 36000 miles from a tew cars to all its nearly three dozen lines ord said it would begin selling optional equipment in cost saving packages Even with incentives prices are not what they used to be The average retail price paid for a

light Into Atlanta ATLANTA (AP) The British Airways Concorde made its first and possibly last trip to Atlanta Wednesday as hundreds of people lined roads and fences to watch the arrival of the supersonic aircraft The plane was scheduled to return to New York today Officials of suburban College Park and Clayton County had tried to block landing of the plane at Hartsfield Atlanta Inter national Airport because of the noise it makes but a federal judge last week refused to pro hibit the arrival The supersonic arrival in Atlanta was arranged by the Atlanta Skylarks Travel Club Hamp Vason president of the club said he never again will organize a trip to Atlanta for the Concorde The negative pub licity and virulent reaction of local politicians have made the flight not worth the

came a long way to see it David Cater drove from Chatsworth in north Georgia Wednesday to see the Concorde is a chance of a life he said know why against it but all for it Everybody ought to come out

pulled over to watch the landing Traffic was backed up afterwards said Parks an off duty Atlanta police officer truly beautiful but loud I think it was going to be that loud I still be opposed to it coming here on a regular Parks of College Park brought with him a sound meter which indicated that the the Con corde registered 1 13 decibels on meter compared with the 100 to 104 decibel level most of the other planes created GM Chairman Roger Smith this week refused to rule out a return to incentives saying GM would monitor the situation each day To Heinbach that means GM is ready to pounce at any time and may have to do so soon in the world would buy a car from General Motors now knowing be coming back with another round of incen tives?" he asked Wendy Beale an analyst at Smith Barney Inc
