TOKYO -- General Motors Corp., which has had trouble cracking the Japanese market, tried something new yesterday.It opened a glittery, temporary showroom in a busy section of Tokyo -- one of the first tangible byproducts of President Bush's controversial January trip, which was designed to sell cars and create "jobs, jobs, jobs" for American workers.But judging by reactions of visitors, GM cars still are going to be a hard sell in Japan. Among the barriers: price, size and quality."It looks really terrific," 26-year-old Kouzo Iwasaki said, wriggling into the seat of a white Camaro convertible with a sticker price of 4,500,000 yen, about $36,000.

To hear the owner of the city's major in-town automobile agency describe his family's experience, the past 50-odd years have been as steady as one of their big Oldsmobiles set on cruise control. In a city where department stores, schools and libraries have shut their doors in the past decade - and residents sought new housing in the suburbs - the Mortimers, father and son, have believed and invested in an old-fashioned city neighborhood. The ribbon-cutting tomorrow for a new $2 million Anderson Honda showroom at Howard and 25th streets culminates an expansion shaped by a philosophy that this location - not far from downtown Baltimore - is a good place to do business.

If you're buying a car at Warren Wheeler's dealership, you might find yourself haggling with a salesman whose desk is in "Duffy Zepp's Livery Stables." If you're really serious, you can close the deal down the hall at "Wheeler's General Store." Finally, if you walk away with a set of keys, the sale is announced by the clang of a bell at a faux train station. This is "Wheeler," a scaled-down version of small-town Carroll County, with storefronts that serve as office walls and carpeting made to look like dirt roads - all in a fourth-generation car dealer's newest showroom.

Three years ago, John Miller bought a Cadillac franchise to take advantage of the bold advances and sharper image he saw the General Motors company creating for the long-held brand. Now Miller is hoping that investment will pay off in one of the most affluent areas in the state. Miller Brothers Automotive Family recently opened a new Ellicott City showroom for Cadillac, expanding the franchise with the aim of attracting luxury car buyers in Howard County, which has relatively few luxury choices.

It's beach season! Time for a week, if you are lucky, on the coast to enjoy all that the Maryland and Delaware shores have to offer — including some really great shopping. With a built-in captive audience of second-home owners, the Mid-Atlantic coastal towns offer a variety of home furnishings and accessories boutiques with merchandise that suggests a laid-back lifestyle without being overly beachy. For me, no trip to the shore is complete without stopping into my favorite shops to see what's new. Here are a few that are worth a beach detour: Boxwood Home 39 Baltimore Ave., Rehoboth Beach, Del. One of my new favorites, Boxwood Home is perfect for home decorators looking to create a calm, sophisticated look.
