Sep 10, 1996


    TOLEDO, Ohio, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Starting today, Dana Corporation
will again display its products at Automechanika, the world's largest trade
fair for the automotive aftermarket.  Interested visitors from around the
world need travel only as far as their computer screens to get a look at the
Dana booth.
    Automechanika '96, scheduled for Sept. 10-15 in Frankfurt, Germany, is
expected to eclipse the 1994 version of the trade show, when more than
150,000 visitors attended.  Millions more can check out the Dana booth on the
World Wide Web.  Pictures of the exhibition and information on Dana products
are available on the Internet and are accessible from Dana's home page at
http://www.dana.com.
    The Dana Automechanika Web page includes links to pages on German food and
drink, the home page for the city of Frankfurt, a game page and information on
Dana products.   Dana is exhibiting at the show as one way to further its
corporate objective to have 50 percent of its business come from international
operations by the year 2000.
    "Obviously, we hope thousands of visitors from 120 countries will learn
about Dana's products and capabilities by visiting our booth in Frankfurt,"
said Dana Chairman Southwood J. Morcott.  "But many more people will have the
opportunity to discover our company on-line."
    Dana's booth, designed and built in Germany, is approximately 3,500 square
feet, and features Victor Reinz(TM) gaskets, Perfect Circle(R) piston rings
and engine parts, Wix(R) filters, and Spicer(R) drivetrain and chassis
products.  Several of Dana's European and international subsidiaries and
affiliates are participating in the show.
    The Automechanika show is held every two years.  The 1994 version
attracted 3,154 exhibitors from 120 different countries.
