Itinerary – Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary Celebration

Are you curious to know what day it is?  It’s Ford Mustang day, of course!  Our favorite pony car is now 50 years old, and marking the occasion are two incredible coastal events to keep all of us excited about the iconic Americana we have all enjoyed over the years.  Las Vegas and Charlotte are the two hot spots holding a barrage of entertainment, ranging from open-track racing, cruise-ins, ride alongs, exhibits, burnouts, dinners, and even foot races.  Wait, running?  Nah, we’ll drive.  Thanks, though.

Even so, be sure to keep reading, below, to take a glance at the PR clippings which totally detail the schedule of events by day, by hour.  This should keep you plenty busy, if you’re one of the fortunate ones to attend one of the events this Easter weekend.

Question: Where does the 2015 Ford Mustang park?

Answer:  Pretty much wherever it wants.

And in this case, on its 50th birthday, the Ford Mustang (once again) finds a cozy spot at the top of the Empire State building in New York City.  Why?  Because it can.  Why not?  No reason.  Ford is pulling out all the stops for this celebration, and there should be no question as to why it’s all going down.  From celebrations on BOTH American coastlines, to global social campaigns, every single fan…and maybe some new ones…will know that 50 years of an icon is simply awesome.  Especially when it marks the fact that pride and joy endure the test of hardship over time.

The Ford Mustang made it throughout 50 years.  Here’s to many more to come!

Books galore at the 2015 Ford Mustang unveiling

Anyone out there celebrating at the 50th Anniversary celebration of the Ford Mustang this weekend?  Anyone in Charlotte, by chance?  If so, I’d suggest you make your way to the festivities for many reasons, aside from the obvious, and make some milestone memories any enthusiast will treasure for a lifetime.

We just wanted to get out some quick news for you all, to let you know that there is a great chance you can pick up on some great book specials or just say “hi” at the least, to the Motorbooks crew, at their mobile gearhead bookstore.

2015 Ford Mustang Anniversary event survival guide

Here we are, Ford Mustang fans…it’s mid-March, and on the eve of the 50 year mark of our favorite pony car.  The time is finally here, and we’re here to offer up some official intel to appropriately mark the occasion.  Both seaboards of the States will serve as kick-off points, with Charlotte Motor Speedway and Las Vegas Speedway holding honors, respectively.  When’s this action all get started?  We’re glad you asked–just about 30 days from now–on April 16th, 2014.

Get in line for the Great American Pony Drive 2014

There isn’t much better than hitting the open road in a Ford Mustang.  The only way, or maybe ways it could get better would be to join the ranks of an entire herd for the cruise…and to just happen upon a 50th Anniversary of the very car you’re driving.  Sound like a cool adventure to take part in?  It certainly does to us.

That’s what is going down this spring, on April 13th, 2014, in Norman OK, where the Mustang Club of America (MCA) is holding host to a national cruise to chart the way to Charlotte Motor Speedway or  Las Vegas Motor Speedway, depending.  It might sound odd to have two destinations, but actually, it’s the most logical way to get the entire country involved from a centerpoint, expanding out to the coastal regions, where festivities will be held to continue the marking of the Mustang 50th Anniversary.

Keep reading the official Press Release to see the specifics on the cities crossed and dates spanned.  This looks like one for the record books, everyone… Continue Reading →

First 2015 Ford Mustang auctioned off for huge coin

Make no mistake, the 2015 Ford Mustang has already been making waves, and is sure to make many more as we continue to creep closer to the showroom debut of the car, and the exuberant test drives which are sure to come.  What’s interesting this last week in all things 2015 Mustang is that the very first production unit went up for auction at Barrett-Jackson, and brought in $300,000.  Yikes.  Really?

Being the first one off the line, Ford had to make sure something special marked the occasion, and what better way than to slide the equivalent of some small nation’s GDP towards a charitable cause–the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

One of the other, somewhat less spell-binding takeaways, is that the winning bidder get to fully personalize their new 2015 Mustang GT with any choice of options available on the 2015 Mustang model.  Want more?  Keep reading to check out the rest of the details in the PR…
